Goodwin Focuses on Non-Lawyer Training
The law firm of Goodwin Procter is stepping up its training and development of non-lawyer professional staff. The firm announced yesterday its appointment of Jamie L. Krulewitz to the newly created position of director of professional development and training for professional staff. The position is unique among law firms, Goodwin says, in that it is the first director-level position at a law firm focused exclusively on the development of non-legal staff. In explaining why the firm created this position, the announcement said:
The firm has grown rapidly, opening five offices in California since 2006, and a critical step in this nationwide expansion has been optimizing its organizational structure. As part of this key initiative, Krulewitz will devise and implement a cutting-edge program focused on the development, engagement and elevation of all levels of professional staff at Goodwin Procter.
Krulewitz will work out of the firm's New York office, where she formerly served as senior human resources manager. Before joining the firm in 2004, she was vice president of a legal staffing and recruiting company.
