Earlier this week, the law firm Clyde & Co announced it would be introducing a full-time seat for trainees looking to spend six months brushing up on the ins and outs of machine learning inside its in-house Data Lab. Program participants also coordinate with departments inside the firm to identify potential areas for future lab projects.

“Our junior lawyers and those looking to start in the industry are keen to work for law firms that engage on these issues and provide them with the opportunities to develop their skills and their experience,” said Mark Wing, a partner at Clyde & Co and leader of the Data Lab.
