Interview with Milbank partner on the success of its business skills training program for associates
You may remember back in 2011, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy of NYC announced an innovative training program under which associates would be sent to an eight day bootcamp at Harvard Business School to impart some of the business and financial skills they will need to thrive as BigLaw attorneys. Interestingly, the firm doesn't send new associates right away to HBS but instead waits until they are fourth years in the belief that such training would be lost on them unless they've first had a chance to practice for a few years. In this video interview with Lee Pacchia of Bloomberg Law, David Wolfson, the Milbank partner in charge of the business skills program, talks about its success which seems to have exceeded expectations.
