Law Students

Hollingsworth LLP interviews on campus.  We also welcome applications from law students at other schools and regularly hire from schools at which we do not interview.

We hire first-year, second-year and pre-clerkship third-year students for our summer program.  We try to satisfy our new-associate hiring needs from the Summer Associate program.  We extend offers of permanent employment to second-year students who have proven themselves.  Those first-year summer associates whose work and accomplishments meet our criteria are invited to return to the Firm for the summer following their second year of law school.

If you attend one of the law schools where we participate in the On Campus Interviewing program, you may submit your resume through your Career Services Office.  If we do not interview at your school, please contact Gary Rubin, our Recruiting Partner, by clicking here.


Students who are interested in a summer associate position with Hollingsworth LLP, but whose school is not on our On Campus Interview Schedule, should also contact our Recruiting Partner Gary I. Rubin. Please send a resume, law school transcript, and writing sample.  Students who do not interview on campus will be required to go through a screening interview.

If you are invited to the Firm for a call-back interview, our Office Manager will contact you to schedule a mutually convenient interview date.  Typically, you will be scheduled to meet with two associates and two partners for approximately thirty minutes each.

Approximately one week after your interview, you will receive a letter informing you of our decision.


In addition to their work, Summer Associates at Hollingsworth LLP are involved in a variety of professional and social activities.

Our summer associate program strives to convince talented lawyers-to-be in the country to come to Washington, DC, to live and practice law.  We endeavor to have our summer associates get to know the lawyers and staff of the firm and to partake in some of the amenities associated with living in our nation's capital.  We strive to have a good balance between the work aspects of the program - giving our summer associates quality, billable work that advances the interests of our clients - and the social aspects of the program.

Activities from past summers include:

  • Welcome Reception
  • Nationals Games
  • Attorney / Paralegal Crab Feast
  • Softball
  • Bi-Weekly Luncheon Seminar Series, covering such topics as:
    • Briefwriting
    • Daubert
