What do you do when you’re in need of attorneys with specific skills but can’t find enough of them? If you’re Netflix, you create the Production Legal Lab, an entry-level development program that helps lawyers cultivate those skills and then provides them with hands-on experience at the company.

In a LinkedIn post, Neil Ollivierra, director of business and legal affairs at Netflix, talked about the process of devising the Production Legal Lab. It was, from his telling, no easy task. “From a hiring standpoint, it’s almost impossible to find attorneys with experience and skills that precisely correspond to the job in question,” he wrote. ”This is especially true for production legal work, wherein the attorneys preside over the sensitive and often complex engagement of services and procurement of rights from creative professionals such as actors, writers, directors and producers.”
