First-Hand Experience for Future Attorneys

Hare Wynn offers second-year law students the opportunity to gain first-hand legal experience through our summer program.

Our firm seeks the best and brightest for our summer clerkship. While we expect academic excellence from our applicants, that is not the only asset we encourage. We are looking for students who are well-rounded and demonstrate the creativity and excellence it takes to find the best practical and legal solutions to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.

We also recruit students with an eye on diversity, so we can broaden the perspective of our team. Our summer associates demonstrate the virtues of personal integrity, camaraderie, community, mutual respect, and professionalism.

Our summer clerkship hiring process starts with an on-campus interview process, but we also accept write-in resumes from candidates across the United States. Those students can submit resumes via email to Hughston Nichols (hnichols@hwnn.com) or Andi Marquez (andi@hwnn.com).
