    Hiring Criteria

    We seek to hire students whose academic and personal record of achievement demonstrates a commitment to excellence and typically the students we hire are at or near the top of their class. In addition, we are looking for individuals whose character, intelligence, judgment and training will inspire their colleagues and clients to have confidence in their advice and representation. We also attempt to hire a diverse group of lawyers because we believe our firm and our clients benefit from that diversity

    Office Interviews

    If you are invited to the firm to interview, you will be asked to contact our Legal Recruitment Department to schedule a mutually convenient in-office interview date. Call-back interviews consist of a three hour visit, either morning (including lunch) or afternoon. Typically, you will meet with four to six attorneys for approximately thirty minutes each. If you are interested in particular practice areas or if you have questions that might be best addressed by particular lawyers—for example, parents, women lawyers, lawyers of color, openly gay lawyers or newly arrived lawyers—please let us know. We will make every effort to accommodate your request.

    Travel Reimbursement

    Out-of-town law students: If the firm interviews you on-campus and invites you back to the office, we will reimburse you for your interview expenses or share them with other firms.  Reimbursable expenses include reasonable air and train fare, ground transportation, hotel accommodations and reasonable cost of meals. For automobile travel, we will reimburse your mileage, tolls and parking fees. For more specific information, please contact our Legal Personnel and Development Department. We do not reimburse candidates for “prescreening” interviews.

    Travel reimbursement form: Either prior to or during your visit to our office, you will receive an interview packet that contains a travel reimbursement form on which you should list your out-of-pocket expenses. Please provide all receipts when submitting your request for reimbursement.
