We are always looking for law students with strong credentials to join us. Bradley & Riley has established a comprehensive training program for our associates. We provide new associates with one or more seasoned mentors to ease the transition into the practice of law in a firm. Mentors help a new associate navigate the firm’s daily processes and protocols and monitor the amount and variety of work the new associate receives.
We assist associates in gaining a broad background of legal experience. Because our firm provides a range of services, new associates have exciting alternatives and opportunities available to them. To the extent possible, associates are assigned to cases or projects at their inception and work on them with a lead attorney until resolved. In addition, associates are given the opportunity to work on different projects with several different attorneys. We believe it is in the best interest of the firm and the associates to provide associates with a broad experience and the flexibility to develop individual practice preferences. It is our hope that all of our associates will mature and develop their legal abilities so they can become shareholders.
We send representatives to selected law schools for on-campus interviews each year. However, it is not possible to conduct interviews at more than a few law schools or match with every interested candidate. Therefore, law students interested in our firm are encouraged to contact us.
Summer associates are a valuable source of new associates for the firm. We view our summer associate program as more than just a continuation of the legal research done at law school. We strive to allow our summer associates to work in a variety of areas of practice to acquaint them with all aspects of the firm’s full range of services and our client base. We carefully evaluate the work of each summer associate with a view toward potential employment as an associate of the firm.
