2018 Summer Associate Program and On Campus Interviews 
Each year, we interview law students—primarily 2Ls—at a variety of law schools and job fairs for our Portland and Seattle offices. Please check out our on campus interview (OCI) page to see where we will be participating this year. We encourage you to go through the OCI process if we will be on your campus. Even if we are not scheduled to be on your campus this year, we would still like to hear from you! (Historically, half of our summer class comes from non-OCI schools.) We will start accepting applications via our online application site on June 1. Also, we would love to know if you are in town, however please note that we will not be actively processing any applications until mid-July. Please keep in mind that 2018 Summer Associate applications will close at midnight on August 31. To apply for a Summer Associate position in Portland or Seattle, please click the button below.


To ensure you have a complete application packet, we ask that you include the following information:

  • Cover letter
  • Current resume
  • Copy of your law transcript (unofficial is fine)
  • Copy of your complete undergraduate transcript (unofficial is fine)
  • Writing sample which has not been heavily edited by a third party (5-10 pages long)
  • List of two or three references, one of whom should be a person qualified to comment on your law school work.
