Professional Development and Training
We recognize our responsibility to train our attorneys so they become capable of assisting our clients competently, efficiently, and independently. This starts with individual case mentoring – at no expense to our clients. Training classes are held in-house on topics of general interest, such as changes to substantive areas of law, trial practice, briefing and pre-trial procedures.
Wells, Anderson & Race, LLC pays for the continued legal education of all of its attorneys. At the appropriate time in their legal career our attorneys attend deposition training at the Defense Counsel Trial Academy of the International Association of Defense Counsel. Our attorneys participate in the Faculty of Federal Advocates program of the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. Through the Faculty our attorneys can attend monthly legal education programs at which the U.S. District Court Judges and Magistrate Judges speak and the annual half day Roundtable with the Federal Judges.
On a yearly basis, the members evaluate the progress of our associates and discuss with them their development as attorneys and opportunities we can provide to them in order to advance their careers; and to provide additional training or assistance they may need to develop professionally.
All of our attorneys continue to seek professional and personal improvement throughout their career, including participation at professional conferences – such as the IADC meetings, and the DRI area specific conferences, such as Product Liability, Drug and Medical Device, and Governmental , the Product Liability Advisory Council, and Colorado Bar Association, Denver Bar Association and Colorado Defense Lawyers’ Association programs. We welcome opportunities to attend client specific training, and to provide training for our clients in areas of interest to them.
We know that the training of staff goes hand in hand with our commitment to provide excellent representation to our clients. We have regular staff training as we update our software resources. We send our staff to conferences and training programs as needed.
