LAW STUDENT RECRUITMENT AND CLERKSHIP PROGRAM
Gallagher Sharp strives to identify the top, most promising candidates to join the firm as part of the next generation of Gallagher Sharp attorneys. As part of this recruitment effort, the firm does not operate a traditional Summer Associate program for second-year law students. Instead, we recruit law students entering their third and final year of law school to participate in the firm’s clerkship program. Students selected as clerks participate in a paid clerkship program during the second semester of their final year of law school studies. Clerks are placed in one of Gallagher Sharp’s four offices, and have the opportunity to gain exposure to a variety of the firm’s practice groups. Serving as a Gallagher Sharp clerk affords students the opportunity to experience the practice of law in a real-time law firm environment, working directly with the firm’s attorneys on meaningful legal work for the firm’s clients.
Until a clerk successfully completes the clerkship program, the firm does not guarantee post-graduate employment. The firm anticipates, however, that students in the clerkship program join the firm as Associate Attorneys upon successful completion of the clerkship program, graduation from law school, and admission to the bar.
There is no investment more critical to the long-term success of any law firm than the recruitment of the best law students and retention of attorneys who will become the future leaders of the firm. We look for those qualities we believe are cornerstones to proven success in the courtroom and for future advancement: integrity, exceptional intellect and aptitude for the law, maturity, unyielding commitment to excellence, and unwavering loyalty to the firm and its paramount commitment to delivering the best possible legal services and advice to clients. We focus on attracting and hiring outstanding law school graduates either directly out of law school or after judicial clerkships.Learn More About Our Associates Program>
