We currently visit nine California law schools: Loyola, McGeorge, Pepperdine, UCLA, UC Davis, UC Hastings, UC Irvine, USC, and University of San Diego. Applications from students attending other law schools are also considered each Fall.
Selected applicants are invited to participate in our weekend callback program, which includes an evening dinner with members of the Recruiting Committee, followed by a full day of interviewing at the firm. Our unique callback interviewing process gives both students and members of the firm substantive and meaningful opportunity to evaluate one another.
Our summer program is designed to give law students both a representative sampling of our firm's diverse practice and the opportunity to get to know the attorneys in our firm.
We consider legal research and writing to be an important part of our summer program, but we also emphasize the inclusion of summer associates in such activities as client meetings, courtroom practice, public agency hearings and city council meetings. Another aim of our summer program is to acquaint summer associates with the cultural and recreational activities available in the general area. The firm hosts a variety of both formal and informal social events throughout the summer that provide participants with the opportunity to get to know our lawyers and their families.
BB&K has been successful in utilizing its summer program as our primary source for new associates. Each summer associate is assigned two mentors who help orient the summer associate to the firm's practices. We conduct an individual in-person mid-summer review for each summer associate to dialogue with the student regarding his or her progress. Work assignments are carefully coordinated to ensure that work is evenly distributed and that summer associates work with as many attorneys as possible on a variety of matters. Assigning attorneys commonly provide constructive feedback on individual assignments.
