Hanson Bridgett actively recruits talented, energetic, diverse law students who share the same vision as the people who make up our firm. Our firm's main recruiting source for entry level attorneys is our summer associate program.
We conduct interviews during the fall recruiting season at regional law schools to fill between 4 to 5 summer associate positions. We purposefully keep our summer program small to maintain the cooperative and supportive environment consistent with our firm's culture. A relatively small summer program also enables our summer associates to work in all the major practice areas of our firm and to get to know the people who make up Hanson Bridgett.
