Entry-Level Associates and Summer Associate Programs

Chamberlain Hrdlicka hires entry-level associates primarily, but not exclusively, through our summer associate programs.  In recent years, we have had three to five summer associates in our Houston office, one to two in the Atlanta office and may have a summer associate in our Philadelphia and San Antonio offices. 

The Houston and Atlanta offices conduct an eight-week summer program running from mid-May through mid-July. We offer a comprehensive program for 2L students that creates opportunities for substantive work in a variety of practice areas and social events to network with our attorneys. Summer Associates are assigned mentors to help guide them through our program and schedule weekly lunches with Shareholders.  We are committed to providing a program that allows Summer Associates to experience our Culture of Excellence and Collaboration.

Recent law graduates who have demonstrated superior academic achievement and relevant prior legal work experience, will also be considered for entry-level associate positions, subject to the firm's needs.
