We consider career development a key aspect of your professional activity at Reed Smith. We created the Reed Smith University, the first-ever educational arm of an international law firm, in partnership with the Wharton School. This award-winning online learning programme offers hundreds of classes to lawyers, trainees and staff on law, leadership, professional support, technology and business development. The Paris office also has a series of training seminars on new developments in the law and in the French market. We also use a global competency-based development programme, covering all aspects of professional development including core values, competencies, performance management, training, mentoring, and rewards and recognition.
