Legal Week Innovation Awards Training Innovation: O’Melveny & MyersJuly 25, 2016
On July 20, 2016, Legal Week detailed the winners of their Innovation Awards, which were given out in May 2016. O’Melveny received the training innovation award for its campaign to help junior lawyers perform their day-to-day tasks more efficiently.
According to the article, the firm developed an online litigation learning system that details the 400 most common tasks lawyers typically have to undertake, allowing junior lawyers to click on a task to find out the most efficient way to perform it, drawing on the firm’s previous work, digital resources, and litigation expertise. This crowd-sourced, knowledge-sharing structure means the training system is continuously being refined and improved.
“This firm has developed an original, intuitive, and very thorough system. The crowd-sourcing approach to improving the program gets a big tick,” one judge enthused.
