Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP recognizes that even the most junior lawyers have a tremendous amount to offer and expects attorneys at all levels to shoulder significant responsibility. Our application process is rigorous: special attention is given to writing excellence and litigation know-how. We consider applications throughout the year and hire on a regular basis.
The Firm often hires individuals with 0-3 years of experience to serve as litigation fellows, and this is a way stand-out summer associates come into the Firm after their law school graduation. The litigation fellowships provide new lawyers a one or two-year opportunity to gain extensive litigation experience. Our fellows play significant roles in our litigation: engaging directly with clients and opposing counsel, briefing discovery motions and other major filings, and taking and defending depositions. Many fellows stay on at the Firm to become associates.
The Firm is no longer accepting applications for 2020 or 2021. Please check back in fall 2020 for any updates regarding hiring for 2021.
