Careers

Practice Happy

What’s it really like working at Crowell & Moring? Well, for starters, we think the work is only as good as the life that’s lived around it. Make no mistake: you will work hard. Get ready to dig in and learn from some of the most talented, interesting, intellectually curious, creative minds in the legal profession. We also encourage you to push your boundaries outside of the firm. Take risks. Give back. See the world. Raise a family. Run a marathon. Learn to speak Mandarin Chinese. Do what you need to do to come to work feeling energized, challenged, and glad you chose to be a lawyer.

You're looking for the right firm to jumpstart your career. The one that will challenge you right from the start. With the freedom to explore what interests you most. You can find it all right here in a firm that's been ranked among the top 100 most prestigious firms in the country. And we don't sacrifice our soul for prestige—we've also been named one of the "50 Best Places to Work." Maybe that's why so many of our people choose to start their careers here—and decide they never want to leave.

For The Sharp, Smart, and Obsessively Curious

Chances are, you have big plans (pass the bar, work really hard, and make a difference). We get that. In fact, over 100 of us were once in your shoes. Which is why we've crafted a totally unique Summer Associate Program to help you get where you want to go. A program that will test your grit, open your eyes, and—bottom line—make you an exceptional lawyer. You’ll be exposed to our real, refreshing, international law firm.

A Summer Like No Other

Our Summer Associate Program is different from other firms’. For starters: you’ll get to do more. Our summer associates draft motions, research, negotiate contracts, interview witnesses, and that’s just the beginning. You’ll have access to a variety of practice areas as you work on a series of short-term projects, gaining valuable feedback and insight along the way. Our primary goal is to give you a crash course on what it’s like to be a lawyer here. The work, the training, the social events—all will give you a great idea of who we are, what we do, and how we do it. We hope you end up joining us. After all, homegrown lawyers are key to the success and richness of our practice.

Instruction + Inspiration

We pack the summer with workshops and in-house seminars to make you a better lawyer. Using a fictional fact pattern, you'll become counsel to a fictional client all summer long. You’ll conduct your own deposition, oral argument, and negotiation/mediation session. And those fictional clients and judges? They’re Crowell & Moring partners, counsel and associates—the very people committed to helping you become a better lawyer.

Real-Live Events

Summer Associates can observe Crowell & Moring lawyers in action by attending various Live Events: real-world activities like court hearings, client meetings, depositions, presentations, and negotiations.
