Hybrid L&D: Developing Associates in a Post-Pandemic World

By Sarah Levine

Hybrid L&D White Paper

Check out the Hybrid L&D white paper for insights into implementing a successful Hybrid L&D strategy.

As a PD leader at a top firm noted, “the pandemic has fast-forwarded people’s thinking by a good 5 to 10 years when it comes to adopting new more innovative ways to train lawyers.”

In our new white paper, we share what we’ve learned from witnessing that transition firsthand and draw on our years of experience working with dozens of Am Law 100 firms.

The paper is called Hybrid L&D: Developing Associates in a Post-Pandemic World, and it offers a framework for how firms can make the most of their training programs by combining innovative learning techniques with the best of what’s already working at their firms. We call this approach Hybrid L&D.

The paper also includes case studies and contributions from firms, including Davis Polk, Goodwin, Pillsbury, Jackson Lewis, and Wilson Sonsini. And it discusses:

  • Why firms are reexamining how they’re training their lawyers
  • The elements and benefits of a Hybrid L&D solution
  • The role of innovative learning techniques, such as blended and digital learning
  • A framework for putting a Hybrid L&D strategy in place

Also included are case studies of Hybrid L&D in action at several Am Law 100 firms.
