Anderson Kill P.C. follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.

Hiring Criteria

Anderson seeks to hire interesting people from diverse backgrounds; the firm looks for "an eclectic group of students without paying a lot of attention to grades." The on-campus interviews with Anderson are "casual; in fact maybe not enough information about what the firm is really like is discussed," we were told. One person advised that applicants should not be afraid to voice their opinions on social and political issues. The firm prefers people who can argue persuasively for their own views.

Pro bono

The firm has rebuilt its intellectual property practice after some attorney departures a few years ago. Anderson encourages young lawyers to handle pro bono matters, particularly since such cases can provide valuable courtroom experience. Attorneys become engaged in pro bono projects ranging from asylum law to tenant advocacy.
