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 named a Leading Firm in Chambers Associate 2018 and recognized among the top eight law firms in the U.S. ranked in Vault's 2019 The Best Law Firms to Work For. The Firm also received the top ranking in Substantive Work; Informal Training, Mentoring & Sponsorship; and Career Outlook.  


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 clerkship, 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.
