Your application package should include a cover letter, resumé, copies of official undergraduate and law school transcripts (and transcripts from any other post-secondary education), as well as a list of upper year courses you intend to take. Letters of reference are welcome, but not required. Please do not include a writing sample.
Your cover letter should not exceed one page. Explain why you are interested in our firm and how you could contribute as a member of our team. If you have met people from our firm, let us know. If you are developing an interest in a particular practice area, tell us (it helps us match you with prospective interviewers). If you don’t yet have a particular area of interest, that’s fine, too. For more tips on preparing an effective cover letter, check out Ari Blicker’s presentation on our “Resources” page.
Your resumé should not exceed two pages.
Be thoughtful in preparing your materials. Attention to detail is key.
Your law school’s Career Development office organizes helpful sessions about recruitment, including workshops on cover letters and resumés. We encourage you to attend.
