We fully immerse our summer associates in the Firm to provide an accurate picture of what being a Jones Day lawyer is like. For starters, you'll be provided a mentor and receive extensive practical and substantive training, including a two day nationwide orientation and training program in Washington, DC. You'll learn about the practice of law not by watching, but by working side by side with Jones Day attorneys and getting involved in real assignments. And the mix of assignments is not one size fits all—you'll have the flexibility to select assignments from as few or as many practice groups as you are interested in sampling, including pro bono. Finally, at organized socials events and outings during the summer, you'll have the opportunity to get to know the Firm and our lawyers better, in addition to having a lot of fun of course.
Successful summer associates may be invited back to join us in a full time position, and indeed, the vast majority of our new lawyers join us after spending a summer at Jones Day.
