2025 Summer Associate 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.
