Our program includes work on real legal matters, not "make-work," and those problems often involve far more than library research. In recent years, this has involved assisting at depositions, court proceedings and closings.
In addition to expanding legal skills, participants have the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of client meetings, witness interviews, negotiation sessions and fact-gathering projects.
Participants benefit from our extraordinary culture. The collaborative and truly warm environment is valued by everyone at Hughes Hubbard. We stand out from other highly-ranked firms because of it.
We focus on building a highly diverse team with a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds. This makes us better equipped to deliver creative and effective solutions to our clients' legal issues. We welcome new perspectives and approaches.
We were among an elite group of firms named to Law360’s inaugural list of “Litigation Powerhouses.” The winners “leveraged their deep legal talent to score remarkable wins for their clients over the past year,” according to Law360.
We earned the top spot on The American Lawyer’s list of Big law firms for U.S. pro bono commitment. The firm was also named a “Law 360 Pro Bono Firm of the Year.”
We received a perfect score on this national benchmarking survey and report on policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
We received this award from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum for the sixth consecutive year, one of only 12 firms nationally to have consistently achieved this recognition since the program's inception in 2011.
Hughes Hubbard won eight Airfinance Journal “Deals of the Year” over the last four years including this year’s North American Deal of the Year and the “Regional Jet/turboprop Deal of the Year.”
This year Hughes Hubbard expects to hire approximately 21 law students for our firm-wide 2017 summer program and approximately 21 associates to begin work in the fall of 2017.
We will interview at a number of law schools as well as job fairs throughout the country. We also welcome resumes from students at other law schools.
The majority of the interviewing is done during the fall. Candidates participating in on-campus interviews are interviewed by partners and associates at law schools across the country. Candidates are then invited to Hughes Hubbard to meet with four or five additional attorneys. We reimburse students for their travel expenses.
