ABSTRACT
The article looks at how a demystifying the law development program at legal firm Halliwells is boosting employee engagement. Joanne Edwards, training and development manager of Halliwells, developed the program because she joined the firm with no previous legal experience. Edwards says she knows how important that new employees knew something about the firm and law itself. The program covers the basic background of how a law firm works and the specific workings of Halliwells.
