Survey Says


Training & Assignments

  • “I did not expect to have the level of interaction with partners and senior associates that I was provided as a summer.  The work was substantive, and I felt that I was making a real contribution to the team.”
  • “I had the opportunity to work on research and drafting assignments, and I found that work to be similar to what I worked on my first year as an associate.  I was also able to attend hearings, which I found valuable and interesting.”
  • “I was able to work with a small team on a case as it approached trial at the end of my summer. The experience was great and much more hands-on than I expected from a BigLaw firm. I was able to work closely with a partner and senior associate. They treated me like a member of the team.”
  • “Hogan Lovells offers a wide variety of work for summer associates. Summers pick assignments from a ‘job board’ and are able to select assignments in virtually any practice area they might be interested in. It felt like the firm encouraged exploring different practice areas, which I found to be incredibly helpful in narrowing what I did (or did not) want to do later in my career.”

Social Opportunities

  • “Great social program. A lot of thought and work goes into planning it and the whole office cares about the program so attendance is usually great.”
  • “Our summer class was really friendly with each other and we had a great time together and with the associates and partners. There were usually always partners at every event. There was a good range of events, from laid-back trivia and cooking class, to rowdier Ariana Grande concert and karaoke, and the in between of a Yankees game. We were always well fed and taken care of. We also had a summers only event at the beginning of the summer doing escape the room which helped us bond and was really fun!”
  • “The firm did a stellar job in putting us in close contact with senior associates and partners alike. Very welcoming firm.”
  • “Despite the large class, the firm did an excellent job and socializing summer associates with events all summer long. The firm had the right mix of mandatory, suggested, and optional events to both allow associates sufficient personal time (and getting to know a new city for those coming from elsewhere) and to ensure strong personal and professional connections between summer associates.”

Associate Experience vs. Summer Expectations

  • “It's been pretty consistent with expectations. I think the summer program does a good job of giving a window into what the work and office are like when you come back full time. The people at the firm are open and candid about the job, and no one made any promises that went undelivered.”
  • “Higher expectations in terms of hours billed and substantive quality of work product.”
  • “The level of camaraderie among the associates I felt as a summer translated directly to what has been my experience at the firm.”
  • “Other than the fact that we are all working remotely, I have not had many surprises. The summer associate program was a great window into what it's like to work at the firm and I knew what to expect from my full-time position. I have been pleasantly surprised by the firm's redoubled efforts toward diversity and inclusion over the past year.”

Favorite Summer Events

  • “I really liked our ‘healthy hour’ events—soul cycle or other workout class, followed by dinner at one of the healthier local places.”
  • “Iron chef cooking competition.”
  • “Crab feast in Maryland.”
