Each year, Curtis interviews students at top law schools around the country for our summer program, seeking candidates we believe will be successful associates and ultimately develop into future partners of the firm. In addition to academic success, Curtis values an entrepreneurial spirit, integrity, leadership and maturity as well as strong interpersonal skills.

Summer Program

The Curtis Summer Program is small and highly selective. Curtis chooses approximately 10 to 15 second-year law students and 2 to 3 first-year law students to participate in our highly rated program. The summer program, which lasts ten weeks, starts in late May and ends in late July. Grades and scores are not the only criteria for selection. Curtis looks for students who are confident, independent thinkers as well as multilingual. We immerse our summer associates in law firm life through client projects, training seminars and social events. The summer program is designed to give students a realistic view of the practice of law while at the same time teaching them real-world lawyering skills in a hands-on environment. Our summer associates quickly become assimilated through close contact with partners and mentors and involvement in important client work.


Students enrolled at a law school where we conduct on-campus interviews should apply through the school's career placement office. For the schedule of where Curtis recruits on-campus, visit our Recruiting Calendar page.

Students enrolled at a law school where we do not recruit on campus should email both their resume and law school transcript to the legal recruiting contact listed below.


Curtis hires first-year law students for summer associate positions. We generally consider applications from December 1 to February 28. Interested candidates should email the legal recruiting contact to inquire about what opportunities are available.
