Houston Summer Program

“BakerHostetler is a great place to work. As a summer associate, you’re given real world assignments that are both challenging and fulfilling. The attorneys there are deeply invested in your success. If you want to work for a firm where you have the opportunity to learn and grow as an attorney, join the Baker team.”

- Jessica Adams, 2016 Houston Summer Associate, University of Texas School of Law

In the Houston office, we are fond of saying “we work hard and enjoy the work we are doing.” The philosophy of our summer program is to give law students the experience of what it is like to be a lawyer within our office. Our program is designed to be the first step of development and the groundwork for a rewarding career with our firm. Every effort is made to expose summer associates to all aspects of the Firm, by receiving substantive work, professional training and social networking opportunities.

We believe the best way to learn is through first-hand experience and exposure to real legal events. Our goal is to offer a realistic experience; therefore we place great importance on providing our summer associates with real, substantive work. The firm provides many opportunities to gain practical knowledge, in addition to meeting our lawyers and gaining a better understanding of BakerHostetler culture. Our lawyers also provide meaningful feedback to Summer Associates on their work product.

You will have the opportunity to meet our lawyers and staff at various social and professional development events. Additionally, there are multiple opportunities to have lunch with our Partners and Associates to gain more insight about the Firm. Throughout the program, you will have a supervising partner and associate to mentor you and guide your development.

At BakerHostetler, our well-rounded summer program is designed to provide students with the training, experience and confidence necessary to begin the journey to become great lawyers who will enjoy their colleagues and their work.
