GW recognizes that an essential component of the foundation for attorney development is an effective mentoring program. Dedicated to the long-term personal and professional growth of its associates, and with the objective of creating a work environment that promotes the quality performance of legal services, GW has created a formal and comprehensive mentoring program (the “Program”).
Associates fresh from law school and even more experienced lateral hires are assigned a mentor from among the many experienced attorneys at GW. Mentors assist associates through the early stages of their tenure at GW, meeting regularly in order to ensure that associates become fully adapted to GW and its culture, as well as the high standards a GW attorney is expected to meet and the resources available at GW. The Program eases the associates’ transition to legal practice and life at GW and fosters a greater personal connection between GW and its individual attorneys, which in turn enhances career satisfaction and associate loyalty.
The Program is meant to supplement, not supplant, other activities of GW dedicated to the development of its associates. In addition to informal mentoring that occurs through daily interactions among GW attorneys, training is also provided through in-house seminars, departmental meetings, continuing legal education programs conducted by GW and careful supervision by our experienced attorneys. GW also has a program by which attorneys “shadow” experienced attorneys at a work-related events such hearings and depositions, and a well-structured evaluation program for advising associates annually of their progress.
