Current Employee Current Employee Mr. San Francisco

Advice to law firm management:
Continue to work on diversity initiatives, including specific policies. Continue offering flexibility for teleworking. Continue providing concrete goals and benchmarks for advancement.

JW is a great place to work. The people are smart and fun to work with, and people really love what they do. The culture is wonderful, and the work is great. I am very grateful to work there.

The health insurance is not great. I hear this is an issue with most firms. The pressure to pay higher and higher starting salaries requires a greater emphasis on hours worked.

Diversity Write a review

At Jackson Walker, we believe that diversity makes us better. By actively recruiting, retaining, and advancing a diverse workforce, we are better equipped to serve our sophisticated, global clients and to contribute to making our communities better places.

We foster diversity by promoting a culture in which all individuals are afforded the opportunity to excel. Our Diversity Committee (whose membership is made up of both lawyers and staff) develops and administers our goals, and provides advice and recommendations in order to improve our diverse workplace.

Jackson Walker is proud of the diversity we have achieved in our firm. As a result of our targeted efforts:

Nearly 50 percent of the firm's associates are women, and more than 25 percent are members of ethnic minorities.

For the past 5 years, at least 50 percent of the firm's new partners have been women. In 2014, Jackson Walker promoted more women to partnership than any other Texas firm.

More than 75 percent of the attorneys hired by the firm in 2013 were women and minorities.

Summer associate program


At Jackson Walker we offer a first-half summer program, which typically starts in mid-May and runs for six weeks.


We offer a competitive summer associate compensation package. Currently we pay our summer associates $3,077 per week subject to withholdings required by law. In addition, parking fees are paid by the firm for summer associates during the summer program.


The firm will reimburse your one-way travel expenses if you do not live in the city in which you will work. We can also provide you with reputable sources to assist in finding summer accommodations.


Each summer associate is assigned two or three Responsible Attorneys, a team of partners and associates who will contact you a month or two before you start to welcome you and answer any questions you may have before you arrive. They will also take you to lunch on your first day, keep in touch with you throughout the program to help integrate you into the firm, and take you out for your farewell dinner at the conclusion of the program.


You will go through a one and a half day comprehensive training and orientation session when you start, and our librarians will schedule Westlaw and Lexis training for you within a few days of your start date. Workshops and other opportunities for additional training are frequently made available throughout the summer.
