Hiring Process

Introductions

Summer associate hiring starts with an on campus interview or a student submitting an individual resume.  If you would like to meet with representatives from Wiley Rein, please contact your law school’s career services office to sign up for an on-campus interview.

If you attend a school where Wiley Rein is not conducting on-campus interviews, please contact us directly.  Please submit your full application online here or by emailing Kathy Schmidt, Senior Manager of Attorney Recruiting and Professional Development at recruiting@wileyrein.com .  We consider a full application to include a resume, law school transcript, writing sample, and list of references.

Call-back Interviews

If the initial introductions result in a call-back, our Recruiting Department will work with you to arrange a mutually convenient visit to the firm. Students will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses. Should a student prefer to combine interviews with more than one firm during a single trip, we are able to share costs with the other firm(s). Our travel agency will be happy to assist you with your travel plans.

During call-back interviews, visiting students meet with four to six attorneys individually for twenty minutes each. Morning interviews are often followed-up with lunch with two of our junior associates. 

If you have a specific question or area of interest you would like to discuss, please let the Recruiting Department know prior to your interview, and we will keep that in mind when arranging your interview schedule.

Offer Decisions

Students are typically notified about offer decisions within a few weeks of the in-office interviews. Offers are made on a rolling basis throughout the interview season.  The firm adheres to the NALP guidelines with regard to the timing of offers and decisions.  The guidelines can be reviewed here.
