Annually, JUVE’s career magazine, azur, honors top legal employers with the prestigious “azur Awards.” Law firms, legal departments, public authorities and consulting companies are honored for their outstanding commitment in the promotion of new talents. WilmerHale was one of four motivated and dynamic employers that have been nominated in the area of education and training.
The nominations are the result of both factual research by azur's editorial team and job application and associate surveys. Main survey topics include the young lawyers’ professional education, the employer’s offers for developing economic expertise and soft skills. The international aspects of the training program are also examined.
As reported by azur, “WilmerHale made very large efforts recently to build up its talent management program. The firm is, with this effort, closing the lines to other large international law firms. Much more intensive and very much closer than other firms, WilmerHale is accompanying career paths of its associates: a regular mentoring program and workshops in the US leave nothing to be desired by the young lawyers.”
