Recruiting - Who Are We Looking For?
Our summer associates have completed their second year of law school and are selected from prominent universities throughout the United States. Interested students should address their resume to the attention of "Summer Associate Coordinator.”
Grades are important as they are a strong indicator of ability and desire to succeed- our attorneys generally have performed above average academically. That said, we are looking for well-rounded candidates, with more than just good grades. The practice of law involves more than having the skills to analyze, write well and solve legal problems. We seek candidates who have strong interpersonal skills, interests outside the law, and who are fun to be around.

Participants in our Summer Associate Program have represented UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, UC Hastings, Boston University, Boston College, Harvard University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, New York University, Columbia University and the University of Hawaii.
