Foley & Lardner LLP follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.

Hiring Criteria

Foley offers opportunities to every law professional to develop, advance, and excel in his/her respective career. The firm encourages teamwork, community involvement, and work-life balance.

The firm is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. It looks for students who can think 'outside the box' and are eager to confront new challenges and responsibilities. The hiring process is not formula-driven, and a legal career here is more than a stack of briefs and endless contracts.

Foley also recruits through placement and job fairs. The firm visited 32 law schools in 2011 for campus recruitments, while it participated in 10 job fairs during the year.

Pro bono

Foley encourages associates to do pro bono work. A maximum of 100 pro bono hours will be counted towards billable and bonus requirements. In 2010, on average, a notable 100 % of associates performed 106 hours of pro bono work each. The firm has increased its focus on pro bono efforts towards immigration and asylum law as well as civil and children's rights.

Arts & artists, post-conviction representation, attention to the needs of children and individual rights are some of the other pro bono areas of work for the firm.

In less than four years, Foley increased its total annual pro bono hours by 192 percent and more than doubled the number of attorneys performing pro bono work.
