CLEVELAND- LAWFUEL – Legal Jobs Network, Legal News –Thompson Hine LLP, a corporate law firm with offices across Ohio and in Atlanta; New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Brussels, Belgium, received high marks in summer associate satisfaction according to The American Lawyer’s Student Edition.
The results come from an anonymous survey of summer associates at 202 law firms. Eligible summer associates are first- and second-year law students who worked as law clerks for at least three weeks during the summer. Job satisfaction was determined by questions about qualities such as how interesting the assigned work was, how much concrete or “real life” work was assigned, how capable summer associate training and guidance programs were and the estimated desire to accept a position from the firm if it were offered. They were also asked to rate the firm overall as a desired place to work. Thompson Hine came out on top in two cities, Cincinnati and Cleveland.
“We consider summer associates a very important part of our firm, and our summer associate program is an integral part of our focus on attracting and retaining top legal talent from across the country,” says Jennifer Irwin, Associate Director of Lawyer Recruiting & Development. “In addition to the excellent scores our Cleveland and Cincinnati offices received, our national ranking places our firm in a very competitive position to continue to attract talented lawyers,” continued Irwin. “We are pleased that our summer associates have had such rewarding experiences at Thompson Hine and we look forward to maintaining our strong reputation in the legal community.”
