Jones Walker LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: A little more personal touch would go a long way, let the lawyers know they're valued as people and not simply as cogs in the machine.

Pros: This firm is huge, both in the number of lawyers it has, the size of the clients it deals with and its reputation. Working here for me will be a huge boost to my resume if I ever move somewhere else, and I never lack for resources when it comes to my work. I get to network with some very connected people.

Cons: The pressure is so intense, working in a place like this if you don't product you're out, there's 20 other lawyers who would love to have your spot. Dealing with large clients is always difficult and people expect the best of me at all times.

Summer associate program

Currently, our summer associate program is available to second-year law students in our Baton Rouge, Birmingham, Jackson, Lafayette, and New Orleans offices, although limited opportunities for first-year law students may be available in some offices from time to time. We encourage students who are interested in our dynamic summer program to get to know us through our recruiting materials, including our recruiting brochure, and at our on-campus interview events.

Our summer associates typically spend time researching, analyzing legal issues, and drafting transactional documents and pleadings, but are strongly encouraged to become more deeply involved in cases and other work. Summer associates observe practice situations and participate in various non-research and writing activities, including accompanying attorneys to depositions, trials, mediations, closings, drafting sessions, and work site and vessel inspections. Jones Walker's summer associates work hand-in-hand with our full-time associates and partners to gain exposure to and knowledge of day-to-day legal practice.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing is great at picking up all of the legal listings everywhere across the internet. I could have gone to three different sites to search, but you had them all on your site. That was extremely helpful. LawCrossing is a one stop shop!
