Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones about the best resources to turn to for law firm research, and what information to consider when applying for summer associate positions.

In this episode we discuss:

  • When should you start to think about summer jobs?
  • Finding firms whose specialties are the best fit for you
  • Considering the differences between headquarters and satellite offices
  • Looking at the firm's diversity program
  • How informative are law firm websites, and where else can you look for information?
  • Why law firm rankings can be a trap
  • Connecting with previous summer associates to get a clearer picture of the firm
