• “First year associates participate in a training program.” Career Outlook • “The firm does a great job of hiring the number of associates that could all potentially make partner in the future.” • “Every associate is very encouraged to make partner throughout his or her career. Some associates that don’t even arrive at the firm on the partnership track are able to transition into it.” • “I think partnership is extremely realistic. Exit options are less clear.” • “There is a clear path to partnership for those that want it. Senior associates can also transition to senior counsel positions.” Pro Bono Commitment • “I’ve worked with Dallas CASA, ACT Dallas, and the Housing Crisis Center.” • “Almost all of the pro bono opportunities I have heard of within the firm are litigation-based or not appropriate for a corporate associate. The firm policies seem to impose a decent amount of red tape when trying to bring in a pro-bono corporate project.” • “I helped set up several charities and tax-exempt companies.” Diversity Efforts • “I work predominantly with women and they seem to like the firm in general.” • “Older male partners tend to hire younger female associates disproportionately.”

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
