Chief Learning Officer magazine honored Sidley at its 2018 Learning in Practice Awards with the 2018 “Business Partnership Award – Bronze” for the firm’s division, i.e., organizations with fewer than 10,000 employees. The award emphasizes collaboration and recognizes “learning departments that have partnered in a progressive way with business partners to develop and deliver a targeted employee development program that supports the partner’s goals.”
Sidley was recognized for the firm’s Litigation Skills Practice Series, which Sidley introduced in the Chicago office in 2016. The Litigation Skills Practice Series is a comprehensive multi-year curriculum that combines classroom learning, hands-on simulations, and personalized feedback and coaching. More than 85 multidisciplinary teams — lawyers, paralegals, technical specialists and consultants — have participated.
This is Sidley’s sixth “Learning in Practice Award” from Chief Learning Officer, having first won in 2011, received two in 2016 and two more in 2017.
