The Academy for Professional Development, Bilzin Sumberg's immersive training program for first-year associates, focuses on the development of critical professional and intrapersonal skills. The Academy concentrates on four key components:

These factors are paramount to the development of legal professionals proficient in the law, who have a keen understanding of business practices and a strong network of relationships.
