Incredibly wealth of training opportunities.
Graduate, Sydney
Informal training so far has been great, with lawyers putting in lots of time to help your learning. Formal training is also great.
Graduate, Brisbane
Extremely useful training. Could do more work for my practice area though - Employment.
Graduate, Brisbane
Most of the trainings are very useful, only issue is that a lot of trainings are national ones by video conference - could feel hard to concentrate sometimes without face-to-face interaction.
Graduate, Perth
We began the graduate program with a one week induction, with ongoing training sessions coming up. There are also training sessions for every rotation while on the graduate program. These involve both soft skills such as communication, organisational and managing our workload; and skills relating to use of technology, document management and research.

The training process for grads is intense. In addition to 2 weeks of training first up, grads rotate through 3 practice areas (6 months per rotation) before submitting preferences of where they'd like to settle.

There is ample training from library training to technology training. I've picked up a range of professional and personal skills.
