We recruit law students who have an interest in our primary practice areas and who want to be a part of our team. We place a strong emphasis on academic and professional excellence, and we look for individuals who are committed to becoming excellent lawyers. We want our summer associates to inspire confidence among colleagues and clients, and to thrive with our team approach to problem solving. We value public service and believe that a well-rounded attorney should contribute to the community in which they live and work.
Our summer program is our primary source for hiring incoming associates, and it’s designed to give each summer associate a realistic view of the day to day practice of law at MLA. We want our summer associates to succeed and be a part of our team for years to come. Think you have what it takes? We will be participating in on-campus interviews to recruit for our upcoming summer associate classes. Please check the calendar to see if we will be coming to your campus. If not, please send your resume to the Recruiting Manager in your city of interest. For more information on our MLA Summer Program, please also look at our Summer Associate and FAQ sections.
Summer Associate Spotlight
"I chose McKenna Long & Aldridge because of its collegial environment and commitment to mentoring young attorneys. As a summer associate, I had the opportunity to work on several substantive assignments and was impressed by the willingness of the firm’s attorneys to reach out and provide assistance. My experience gave me a great sense of what it is like to be a part of the MLA team, and I look forward to joining the firm in the fall."
