Training & Development

At Blank Rome, we know that high-quality professional staff is at the foundation of our success. Our commitment to hiring and retaining a leading pipeline of professional talent is demonstrated through our ongoing professional development training programs, available through our Blank Rome University program.

New professional staff members begin their introduction to our Firm with an orientation process that includes an overview of Blank Rome’s legal practices, policies and procedures, and culture and history. Since technology is an integral part of the legal landscape, our professional staff are introduced to and become familiar with all software technology used Firm-wide.

As your career continues to advance at Blank Rome, professional development programs include advanced training on a number of professional business skills, such as communication in the workplace, business writing, and client service. These courses are delivered in face-to-face, instructor-led classes, as well as desk-side coaching and e-learning modules that are all supported by extensive multimedia applications. In addition, our professional staff are encouraged to establish personal and professional goals as they progress through the phases of their career. We also offer varied mentoring opportunities to further support our professional staff in the successful accomplishment of their daily responsibilities and long-term goals.

Our goal is to create a flexible, collegial environment where everyone can do his or her best work.
