Hodges, Loizzi, Eisenhammer, Rodick & Kohn LLP hires second-year law students for its summer associate program and third-year law students for entry-level associate positions. We look for students with strong academic credentials and excellent oral advocacy and writing skills who have the potential of becoming one of our partners. During the fall recruiting season, we visit law schools in and around Illinois to interview second- and third-year law students, depending on our hiring needs.
If we are not visiting your law school during the fall recruiting season and you are interested in our summer associate program or an entry-level associate position, please forward your cover letter, resume, and writing sample to the recruiting committee in Arlington Heights.
To help our associates be successful at the firm, each associate is assigned to a partner who closely monitors the associate’s progress. Through this mentoring program, associates receive feedback on their performance on a project-by-project basis and through an annual comprehensive written evaluation. Our firm offers first-year associates the opportunity to receive assignments in each of the firm’s practice areas. Associates rotate through each of the firm’s practice areas and attend each practice group’s meetings during the respective rotating cycle. First-year associates are allowed to complete projects in the other practice group areas during rotation. As associates express a preference in particular areas of law, the firm is sensitive to those preferences and attempts to develop an associate’s expertise in those areas of interest.
Our firm offers summer associates a range of experiences that allows them to work in each of the firm’s practice areas. Summer associates have the opportunity to observe or participate in a variety of settings, including board meetings, special education team meetings, client meetings, court and administrative hearing matters, real estate closings, and collective bargaining negotiations. Summer associates attend the practice group meetings for each of our practice groups as well as our continuing legal education seminars. Summer associates also assist the firm in reviewing legal decisions and legislation in preparation for our firm’s annual school law seminar.
