SUMMER ASSOCIATE PROGRAM. Our New York summer associate program provides law students with a realistic and challenging introduction to their legal career. Our program is designed to ensure extensive interaction with associates and partners and to encourage the exploration of a broad array of practice areas and activities. Weekly training sessions are held on topics such as legal writing skills, negotiation skills and taking and defending depositions. Our goal is to introduce summer associates to the life and business of the firm so that they can fully experience our “one team” approach to the practice of law.

US summer associates also attend a retreat in Washington, D.C. with their colleagues from all of our US offices. At the retreat, firm leaders share insights about the firm’s vision and values, commitment to diversity, leading practices, management, firm finance and strategic plans for the future. Partners speak with attendees about their career paths and why they love what they do. Summer associates get to know their colleagues through small group dinners and fun team-building exercises.

ASSOCIATE LIFE & DEVELOPMENT. As an associate at Hogan Lovells, you can expect to be challenged. We are committed to excellence in all we do, including our associate training program. We combine practical experience with a world-class training and development program. Partners look for opportunities to provide associates with hands-on experience and take time to educate associates on the practical skills necessary to excel in their practice. To prepare associates for these opportunities, the firm offers an in-house training program through the Winthrop Academy that teaches associates the fundamental tools for the highest quality legal practice, as well as professional development programs to enable all Hogan Lovells lawyers to achieve their full career potential. Each practice group also organizes specialized training sessions geared toward its particular area of law. The firm also has a Practicum Program that gives associates the ability to devote approximately 40 hours per year to learning opportunities such as shadowing and observation to supplement the skills training and to promote rapid professional development in the early years as an associate.

PRO BONO. Our Pro Bono practice draws on the experience of our professionals worldwide to improve the lives of those without access to justice or the means to hire lawyers, and to meet the legal needs of charities and nonprofit social enterprises. Providing high-quality legal services to those most in need and least able to pay is an integral part of being a lawyer. At Hogan Lovells we take that responsibility seriously. We handle a wide variety of pro bono matters in the areas of human rights, civil liberties, environmental justice, sustainable development, housing, immigration, and arts/culture.
