    “The most memorable feature of my six weeks at Haynes and Boone was the nature of work – it was a true “working” summer clerkship. I attended meetings, listened in on conference calls and was tasked with completing actual client projects, as if I were a first-year lawyer. 15 years later, I still recall how surprised I was when a partner asked me a substantive question in the middle of a meeting! The summer was fun of course, but also instructive and helpful in understanding what my career at Haynes and Boone could ultimately look like. Now, as a partner, I love having the opportunity to mentor summer associates. I want our summer associates to have the same level of guidance, encouragement and support that I was fortunate to have when I was just a clueless student.”

    “During my two summers with Haynes and Boone (the first as a Minority Scholar), I had the opportunity to work on a variety of meaningful projects in the practice areas that interested me. As a law student primarily interested in transactional work, the summer program allowed me to gain invaluable insight into the daily life of a corporate lawyer. From the excellent mentoring relationships to the quality of corporate work given to me as a summer associate, I had no doubt that Haynes and Boone would be the perfect fit for me.”

    “Haynes and Boone’s summer associate program is designed to give law students a sense of the day-to-day at the firm. As a summer associate, I got hands-on experience with diverse projects and was assigned a firm mentor who guided me through the program. For me, choosing a firm at which to start my career was a no-brainer; Haynes and Boone really made me feel like I belonged and that they wanted me to succeed.”

    “For me, the summer program was a perfect introduction to the famed Haynes and Boone culture. Even as an under-informed law student, I could tell that Haynes and Boone was full of really good attorneys who also happen to be really good people. I came out of the summer program knowing that Haynes and Boone was the type of place where I could build a satisfying and successful practice with people I like, and that’s exactly how it has turned out.”

    “Although I did not clerk at Haynes and Boone as a summer associate, as a federal law clerk, I was attracted to Haynes and Boone because of its stellar reputation and sophisticated business and intellectual property litigations practices. Upon arriving at the firm as an associate, I soon realized that Haynes and Boone is also a great place to work, and a place where one with clerkship experience can really hit the ground running. The firm remains dedicated to recruiting those with judicial clerkship experience and has numerous former clerks among its associate and partner ranks.”
