Hiring Criteria

Gibson Dunn actively recruits highly qualified lateral associates for all of the Firm's departments and practice groups. New associates are taken on board very quickly to participate actively in case and deal management. Interested candidates can directly contact local office Recruiting Coordinator along with a cover letter and a resume along with a law school transcript. If there is an opening the candidate will be asked to visit the office for a brief day of interviews with partners and associates in the candidate's practice area.

Hiring decisions are made by the Firm-wide Hiring Committee based on input from the office involved.

Pro bono

Gibson Dunn is committed to improving the communities in which they work. Every year Gibson Dunn donates significant attorney time to pro bono work. The firm's attorneys are encouraged to participate in a wide range of matters; many of which benefit diverse communities. It has a longstanding and greatly valued tradition of service to the community. The firm believes that it is one way of repaying the community that has given it so much. Moreover, it says that its community service and pro bono commitment should be initiated by interested and committed associates and partners, not from any "top-down" directive from management. The Firm believes in and supports active associate participation in pro bono matters and gives one-to-one billable credit for pro bono work performed.

As part of its Pro Bono activities, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher protected constitutional rights, worked to preserve historic buildings, battled slumlords, protected the environment, or facilitated adoptions and guardianships. They have always provided access to justice for those who could not otherwise afford it.

They are committed to using their "best efforts" 60 hours of pro bono work per attorney each year. From associates the firm recommends 100 hours of pro bono work per year.
