Home » Legal Innovators

We’re changing many aspects of how the law is practiced, without sacrificing quality.

Cost-effective Services

Today’s high hourly rates for junior associates are unsustainable. We pair law firms and corporate legal departments with skilled junior legal talent to take on substantive work at a more cost-effective price point. 

Attorney Recruitment

The law school on-campus interview process is antiquated. We take a holistic approach to identify and hire junior legal talent from diverse backgrounds for a 2-year work-based learning program.

Attorney Development

Law firms and corporate legal departments have limited bandwidth and budgets to train new hires. That’s why ongoing professional development and mentorship is a key part of what we do.

“Legal Innovators offers a game-changing solution to a growing challenge in the legal industry: the increasing unwillingness of corporate clients to pay the high rates charged by law firms for first and second year lawyers still learning their trade.  Now, clients and firms can access and grow young, diverse talent without the exorbitant rates compelled by traditional firm salary structures and overhead.”

– Roland Schroeder, Global Executive Counsel, General Electric Corporate Litigation

“Legal Innovators shares our mission of connecting our graduates – considered some of the best in the country – with top employers in Big Law and corporate legal departments. We especially appreciate their focus on traditionally underrepresented groups. Our graduates receive real world experience, training, and mentorship as part of their program. It’s an amazing resource for us and for our students now and in the future.”

– Amy Jones Mattock, Senior Director, Office of Career Strategy, Georgetown University Law Center

David Cruickshank

“I’ve trained associates in many AmLaw 100 firms in management and leadership skills. The associates developing their practice-ready skills at Legal Innovators are talented, diverse, and hard-working. As they complete their intensive training curriculum and law firm assignments, they will be able to step into practice groups and junior teams at any of the firms I have seen up close.”

– David Cruickshank, Principal, Edge International
