What type of training will I receive?

Cahill is committed to recruiting the best attorneys and providing them with the training and guidance necessary to allow them to reach their professional potential. Hands-on work, as supplemented by our training programs, is the most effective learning tool at our associates' disposal. Because of our size, we staff matters leanly and provide young associates with substantial experience early-on.  We have a longstanding policy of encouraging our associates to be actively engaged in every aspect of the matters they are involved in and, as such, our approach to staffing is designed to ensure that our associates receive a high level of partner and client contact and are fully engaged in their matters. Our corporate and litigation groups each supplement client work with training programs. Courses are held monthly, are interactive and designed to teach practical skills. The firm also regularly hosts Continuing Legal Education courses which further supplement associate training and allow associates to maintain their active bar admission status.
