Creating a space for Sidley Austin’s future trainees

The Challenge

The Challenge

Sidley Austin has similar challenges to many law firms when hiring trainees. The period between an offer being accepted and the trainee starting is lengthy, typically around two years. Sidley wanted to use this time wisely and start to build relationships with their trainees before they even joined. They needed a place where future trainees could go to learn about Sidley Austin, engage with their peers, and be provided with relevant content. They also wanted to build commitment and high levels of trust with the trainees from when they first accepted their offer.
