We forged new territory in the late 1980s when we developed our Student Associate Program. Realizing that some of the best legal talent desires to continue working full-time while going to law school, we employ Student Associates on a full-time basis (they have a 1,500 billable hour requirement) and they attend law school classes in the evening. Currently, we offer 100% tuition reimbursement (for grades of B or better) to our Student Associates. They work on a variety of matters, to include patent prosecution and counseling, licensing, due diligence, and portfolio management. Many of our best and brightest have come from the Student Associate Program (our current Managing Partner was a former Patent Examiner and worked as a Student Associate in our Chemical Practice Group while attending school in the evening). Student Associates may work in our Atlanta, GA, Boston, MA, Palo Alto, CA, Reston, VA, and Washington, D.C. offices. We hire with the intention of retaining these students and transitioning them to associate upon graduation from law school.
