Live the Haynes and Boone Experience
Most Haynes and Boone associates are recruited through our summer associate program. Because the summer experience is an important preview of your future, and it’s important to us too, we make it a realistic one. Our summer associates spend at least six weeks with us, working with our lawyers and living our culture.
Where We Recruit
We recruit nationally. Today more than 40% of our lawyers are graduates of law schools located outside the state of Texas, and the members of our firm have graduated from nearly 150 colleges, universities and law schools.
The People We Choose
We’re obviously looking for the best candidates, but you should be aware of certain guidelines that help us shape our final selection decisions.
- We consider 1L candidates on a case by case basis, other than the Haynes and Boone Diversity Scholars, who can join our summer program as 1Ls.
- Our Summer Program is 6-10 weeks long, depending on the office it is at. Our Houston, Orange County, New York, Silicon Valley, and D.C. offices offer a 10 week clerkship. All other offices offer a 6-8 week clerkship. Our summer associates are required to spend at least six weeks working with our firm unless there is a special circumstance that has been approved by the hiring partner.
