Kasowitz is committed to developing the professional skills of our lawyers. 
We believe professional development is an investment in our most valuable resource – you.


We believe in a hands-on approach to training and understand that lawyering skills are typically developed from on-the-job experiences.  Our associates work directly with experienced attorneys who provide ongoing feedback and guidance.

In addition to informal training, significant formal training is also provided.  Training programs focus on ‘best practices’ and all phases of a litigation.  Our training curriculum provides each lawyer with a toolkit of skills to utilize, while developing into a seasoned lawyer.


Kasowitz supports the professional development and success of our lawyers.  All associates and staff attorneys receive an annual performance review, providing an opportunity to discuss career advancement, assignments and key milestones. Reviewing partners provide significant feedback, which is encouraged throughout the year. 

The firm provides opportunities for our lawyers to attend professional conferences and networking receptions hosted by various legal organizations.


The firm hosts in-house CLE courses, addressing a variety of legal topics, throughout the year.  Lawyers are encouraged to attend presentations of interest.  We invite lawyers of all experience levels to contribute to the training curriculum by preparing and presenting courses. 

Kasowitz also has a “Privileged Membership” with Practicing Law Institute (PLI), which allows our lawyers to access online CLE programs. 


Incoming associates participate in a series of training programs referred to as Kasowitz University, or “KU.”  KU is designed to prepare and familiarize first-year associates with all aspects of being a lawyer and litigator, while easing the transition from law school to law firm.  Programs are taught by experienced lawyers.  Topics range from writing skills and effective communication to the “nuts and bolts” of the litigation process.


Kasowitz offers a summer associate, incoming associate and a lateral attorney mentoring program.  These mentoring programs are designed to assist with integration and provide guidance and direction.  Insight and resources for developing an effective mentoring relationship are provided at mentor and mentee training sessions.  Professional development programs and informal events are offered on an ongoing basis, which facilitate quality time and open discussion between mentor and mentee.
