Summer Program

Hawley Troxell’s summer associate program is a 12-week, full-time program that gives 2L law students an opportunity to work side by side with associates and partners. Summer associates are not assigned to any one practice area, so they may find themselves assisting in multiple cases and transactions. Each summer associate is assigned to a mentor who is responsible for general assistance on firm matters, as well as an attorney to coordinate and regulate the workflow so that each summer associate has a positive experience that closely relates to the practice of law at Hawley Troxell.

Successful summer associate candidates will work well with others in a fast-paced legal environment. They will be presented with challenges associated with a premier law practice, as well as the close-knit culture of a mid-sized firm and the enjoyable lifestyle Idaho and the Inland Northwest offers. Candidates should also hold high class rankings and show involvement in law school activities such as law review or moot court.

Employment Offers

At the end of the program, summer associates may be extended an offer of employment following graduation or completion of a judicial clerkship.

Judicial Clerkships

We believe judicial clerkships provide new attorneys invaluable experience. We strongly encourage summer associates to obtain a judicial clerkship upon law school graduation before joining the firm as a full-time associate. For this reason, we offer a one-year partnership track credit, on a case-by-case basis, for candidates who complete a judicial clerkship and begin employment at the firm the following year. Candidates applying for full-time employment may also be eligible to receive payment of bar dues (or reimbursement if dues have already been paid), a study stipend, and a clerkship bonus.

Law School Hiring

Hawley Troxell typically conducts interviews at the University of Idaho Law School and campuses throughout the Northwest and California. Qualified applicants from law schools nationwide who have a genuine interest in living and working in Idaho or the Inland Northwest are also encouraged to apply.

“People gave me opportunities throughout the summer to absorb experience and insight, which nourished my professional growth.”

“I am proud of my performance and growth this summer. The more I learned, the more I realized how little I know, which excites me.”

“I had the opportunity to work on projects from a wide range of practice areas, and this helped me figure out which areas are most interesting to me in real world application. I also got to meet and work with many welcoming and talented people, and attend some community networking events, such as the Justice Run and the BVEP Summit event.”

“Everyone was very welcoming and helpful, and it was great to be able to seek out work in different practice areas.”

“This summer has exceeded my expectations. I have been given many opportunities to demonstrate my capabilities and opportunitites to sit in on depositions and client interviews.”

“I have learned so much this summer about working at a law firm and about what it takes to be an attorney.”

“Hawley Troxell provides law students/Summer Associates with opportunities to explore what it is like to be an Associate in a premier law firm. The firm immerses the Summer Associates in a work environment where they are surrounded by experienced attorneys and complex cases.”

“The experience I gained and the thoughtfulness of the attorneys and staff to see the Summer Associates succeed was invaluable.”
