You want to be the best – now and in the future. The DVDW Academy helps you to develop your professional skills, enabling you to become an expert in the laws of business.
We will also encourage you to be involved with complex cases from day one. You will work under the guidance of one of our experienced lawyers, who will help you to do your job to the best of your ability.
As lawyers move from one stage of their career to the next, their educational and training needs also evolve. Legal interns can dive into our special DVDW Incubator, while more experienced lawyers will also find plenty of training options to continue their development.
The DVDW Incubator is our three-year training programme for junior lawyers. Running alongside and in addition to the Professional Education Programme for the Legal Profession, it helps you further develop your knowledge and skills: not only the law, but also presentation, the dos and don’ts of the legal profession and time management. Ultimately, the goal is to train you to become a confident and self-assured professional.
Internal courses and training
The DVDW Academy organises year-round law courses, helping you to stay up-to-date while broadening your knowledge. Specialist training programmes are provided by the various sections.
We also arrange training designed especially for our lawyers on request, such as Legal English, time management, presentation and acquisition.
A lawyer never stops learning. That is why it is so important to specialise. Helping you to improve your knowledge and understanding of a particular area of the law, these training programmes are highly regarded in the legal profession. DVDW helps its lawyers to make arrangements to complete these programmes, based on individual interests and expertise.
Highly regarded lecturers
The masterclasses and courses are taught by highly regarded professionals and lecturers: not only specialists from our own firm, but also prominent Law professors. The DVDW Academy has an extensive academic network through partnerships with the Institute for Corporate Law, Governance and Innovation Politics (ICGI) and Erasmus University’s Toga Master.
