Thompson & Knight to Offer 1L Summer Associate Program

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - February 01, 2016) - The law firm of Thompson & Knight LLP today announced the expansion of its Summer Associate Program to include 1L law students, in addition to 2L law students.

"Our Summer Associate Program is the Firm's principal source of hiring new Associates," said David C. Schulte, Thompson & Knight's Hiring Partner. "By expanding our program to include 1L law students, we will boost our ability to attract top law students and gain traction with our recruiting efforts on law school campuses. These efforts ultimately contribute to the growth of our practice and the support of our diverse client base."

Thompson & Knight's expanded Summer Associate Program offers 1L law students the opportunity to clerk in the Firm's Dallas and Houston offices for six weeks. Clerkships are first-half only and begin on May 16. The new 1L program, like the 2L program, provides a mix of work assignments and social engagements that afford an excellent opportunity for students to further their legal education by participating in a law firm environment and becoming fully acquainted with Thompson & Knight. During their six weeks with the Firm, 1L Summer Associates have the opportunity to work in two areas of practice and have Partner and Associate advisors who assist with their work assignments, provide feedback, and ensure that they have a rewarding experience. The Firm's 2L Summer Associate Program remains unchanged.
