We provide associates with high-caliber, intensive training that builds real-world judgment and insight. Our associates have the chance to work on top-level engagements with impressive clients. Here, associates will take on significant responsibility under the mentorship of partners with years of experience and contribute on a wide range of matters across practices.

Committed to rendering services of the highest professional quality, we seek lawyers of exceptional ability, integrity and industry. We actively recruit candidates whose academic performance, energy, personality and character suggest that they posses the ability and desire to meet the challenges presented by a demanding practice and are prepared to develop rapidly and assume responsibility early.

And thanks to the firm's longstanding commitment to pro bono work, associates also have the opportunity to contribute to public service.

Our Summer Program An excellent opportunity. For you. And for us.
Actual Work

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.

Real Experience

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.

Extraordinary Culture

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.

Highly Diverse

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.

On-Campus Interviews

This year, Hughes Hubbard expects to hire approximately 20 law students for our firm-wide 2018 summer program and approximately 20 associates to begin work in the fall of 2018.

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.
