Learning and Development
Coleman Greig is committed to a structured and sustained learning culture to ensure that individuals, teams and the firm itself all strive towards achieving our goals and strategic vision.
Our learning plan has been developed to incorporate both legal and non-legal skills and competencies. The various components of the program include:
Continuing Professional Development
Professional staff are provided with ongoing professional development to ensure their knowledge remains current. They participate in appropriate external workshops, forums and seminars.
These include courses for support staff, our Legal Studies Cadetship Program, a core skills program for professional staff, future leaders and senior staff programs for those wishing to further their careers at the firm, and a leadership development program.
These programs develop both legal and general skills such as time management and presentation skills. They also include areas such as mentoring and communication to ensure our staff members uphold our values in all interactions with clients, the public and fellow staff members. There are also extensive opportunities for professional staff at all levels to participate in Coleman Greig's marketing events, and put their newfound skills into practice.
Upon starting with the firm, new staff members are given a comprehensive introduction to the firm's software and procedures, with regular follow up and development training available for all staff.
Further Study Assistance
Employees wishing to complete further studies aligned with their team, and the firm, goals are eligible for study assistance from the firm. Depending on the circumstances the firm can contribute from 50 up to 100% of fees and textbook costs as well as offering paid and unpaid study leave.
