At Stoel Rives we hire the best and the brightest. Our selection process for the summer program is rigorous because our goal is to extend full-time associate offers to all successful summer associates.

Our clients look to us for results, so our lawyers are regularly challenged to be trusted advisors and experts in their practices. We embrace lawyers with different backgrounds, talents, interests and personalities. We particularly value work experience prior to attending law school.

Successful summer associates share these traits:

  • Sound judgment
  • Integrity
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Self starter
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Good interpersonal skills
  • Strong work ethic

Do you possess these attributes? Are you ready to find a place to put your talents to the test and to start your career? If so, we’re interested in speaking with you!

First-Year Law Students: We are proud to offer annual 1L Diversity Fellowships to first-year law students in many of our offices.
