There is a formal 'mentor' in place for each lawyer to support one's career development.
The partners are often very busy and, in my experience, rarely initiate mentoring, however they will happily make time if you ask them. Associate level mentors have been incredibly welcoming and generous with their time. There are formal performance feedback mechanisms with 100 day 'check ins' required by partners.
Partners can be hard to get hold of at short notice since they are busy but I have had good levels of interaction, feedback and praise so far.
Very accessible and great mentors with so much knowledge and wisdom to share. They are really genuinely interested in helping us grow and achieve our potential.
Super accessible. I share an office with a partner who is also my performance coach so I am constantly learning by osmosis and have him there as a sounding board and for feedback while I'm working, even on matters not for him. I think the fact partners are willing to share an office with a grad is a testament to the importance the firm, or at least certain partners, place on development.
I get to share an office with my supervising partner, which means that I get plenty of direct contact with him. He is a fantastic mentor. I get feedback and recognition for my work on a regular basis.
I meet with my performance coach monthly for a scheduled review but can always ask for feedback more often.
Most of my supervisors are fantastic.
