Mackrell International partners with AltaClaro to light the torch for the next generation of lawyers

New York, United States, and London, United Kingdom, January 7, 2021-- Experiential legal learning platform, AltaClaro, and Mackrell International, a global network of independent law firms, are planning to offer AltaClaro’s Virtual Training Bootcamps and Master Classes to Mackrell International members worldwide as part of a new partnership. 

“Our Next Generation lawyers and attorneys carry the torch for the future of the legal profession worldwide - so, we are delighted to be offering AltaClaro’s high-calibre, experiential training to up-and-coming lawyers across our network.  What they learn not only hones individual skills, but also makes our law firm offering stronger,” said Keith Heddle, Managing Director of Mackrell International.

In the first phase of the partnership, AltaClaro ran a set of online Master Classes in Mergers & Acquisitions for Mackrell International’s Next Generation Lawyers. This saw law firms participating across five countries, including Argentina, Chile, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and United States. 

AltaClaro’s experiential training provides personal legal learning at scale, accelerating learning by combining realistic, simulated work with personalized feedback. This unique experiential framework leverages the latest technology and education science, improving competency and retention by 80% over typical online courses. The partnership will afford Mackrell International member firms the opportunity to reduce training costs and maximize efficiency: with AltaClaro’s tech-driven and interactive solution, firms are able to expand training opportunities while leveraging AltaClaro’s leading subject matter experts, allowing partners to focus on client work. AltaClaro’s unique model of integrating small group review sessions with instructors and participants in its curricula also adds an extra layer of relationship-building among the network’s Next Generation of Lawyers.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with such a prestigious global network,” says Abdi Shayesteh, Founder & CEO of AltaClaro. “Mackrell’s members rank in the top 10% of their country's legal league tables. Our experiential learning platform was built for them– giving member firms the ability to empower their Next Generation Lawyers, equalize training, and deepen relationships across the geographies in an accelerated and efficient way.”
