O’Melveny’s Karr Quoted in Law360 on Firm’s Innovative Training Program

November 10, 2014 O’Melveny & Myers’ training program for associate and counsel attorneys was highlighted in the November 7, 2014, Law360 piece, “Five Innovative Associate Training Programs.” The article quotes Rochelle Karr, O’Melveny’s Director of Attorney Professional Development and Alumni Relations, who told Law360 that the need for more frequent performance feedback has intensified as the millennial generation has joined the Firm as associates. “That substantive feedback in real time is the biggest thing they ask for,” Karr told the publication. “They like to know where they stand.” She also noted that O’Melveny’s upward review program, which involves third-party interviews of all attorneys at every level, has been a source of valuable feedback the Firm has used to refine its training program.
