Hiring Process


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. Please note: We have concluded our recruitment for our 2L and 1L Summer Associate position and therefore are not accepting any additional applications at this time. If you have any questions about our summer associate hiring process, feel free to reach out to Janell Mallard at

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.
