Thompson & Knight’s Summer Associate Program is our principal source of hiring new Associates. We are committed to the long-term development of our professionals and provide a collegial environment in which each individual can flourish, through participating both as a team member and, in certain situations, as the individual legal representative of a client’s needs.
We are honored to be the only Texas-based law firm and among the top 20 law firms in the U.S. ranked in the 2014 list of “The Best Law Firms to Work For” published by Vault. The Firm also received top rankings in Satisfaction; Informal Training, Mentoring & Sponsorship; and Career Outlook. In addition, Thompson & Knight was selected for inclusion in the 2014 “50 Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers.
We offer Summer Associate Programs for 1L and 2L law students in our Austin, Dallas, and Houston offices. A mix of work assignments and social engagements afford an excellent opportunity for students to further their legal education by participating in a law firm environment and becoming fully acquainted with Thompson & Knight. During their six to eight weeks with the Firm, Summer Associates are given the opportunity to work in two areas of practice and have Partner and Associate advisors who assist with their work assignments, provide feedback, and ensure that they have a rewarding experience with Thompson & Knight.
