Welcome to Jones Day. Welcome to opportunity.

At Jones Day, your opportunities to develop your career - your legal skills, your understanding of the law, your relationships with colleagues and clients across the globe - are limitless. 

Global

You have the opportunity to work seamlessly with clients and colleagues around the world. Jones Day provides significant legal representation for almost half of the Fortune 500, Fortune Global 500, and FT Global 500. Jones Day can provide integrated legal services of the highest quality because we are a truly global law firm with 42 offices in major centers of business and finance throughout the world, covering 17 countries on five continents. Moreover, we staff our projects by selecting the lawyers best able to meet the specific client's needs, regardless of location. We are looking for individuals who are excited to contribute to a global client service team.

Experience

You have the opportunity to work on projects that challenge your legal mind and expose you to the world beyond your local office. Jones Day is proud to have a 100-year history of representing corporate America, from John D. Rockefeller to Celgene. We have unparalleled experience in traditional practices like M&A, and "bet the company" litigation, as well as in emerging legal fields like cybersecurity/privacy. At the same time, we know that with the privilege of working at the forefront of the process of globalization comes responsibility to work toward ensuring that the costs and benefits of globalization are more equitably distributed. We have demonstrated this commitment through our pro-bono work, including with refugees from the violence in Central America. We are looking for individuals who are committed to tackling the sophisticated legal challenges posed by our global client base and to the authentic advancement of the rule of law.

Team

You have the opportunity to grow as part of a committed team, where we are all responsible for each other’s development and well-being, as well as to the continued success of Jones Day as an institution. Jones Day reflects this core value not only in how we interact with each other, but in how we are organized. Jones Day is a general partnership - a single true partnership - where the financial well being of our more than 4,500 employees rests on the advice each lawyer provides. This responsibility fosters a commitment to one another and reinforces the fact that we have collective duties—to clients, to the partnership, to all Jones Day employees and their families. We are looking for individuals who place client service ahead of individual advancement, and who want to be a resource for, and offer nothing less than their full respect to, their colleagues.

Mentoring

You have the opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with colleagues who are motivated to share their knowledge with you and invest in your future. Jones Day attorneys prioritize the stewardship and future of our institution, and therefore the development of each new generation of lawyers. We invest in our people through formal and informal mentoring programs. Through the New Lawyers Group, our newest legal talent can explore their interests across our practice areas which provides them with mentoring relationships with leaders in each field. We are looking for bright legal minds who see their role not only as those seeking mentoring, but also those who will soon become mentors themselves.

 

Shared Purpose

You have the opportunity to use your creative and flexible thinking, and your commitment to cooperative and responsible team work, to contribute toward our shared purpose: excellence in client service. Jones Day's clients do not come to us for the easy questions. They rely on us to find the solutions in the gray areas, on the as yet un-trodden path, and with the relentlessness of purpose and attention to detail that they deserve. Our attorneys can successfully respond to those demands only if we share the highest ethics and standards for quality of work. We are looking for individuals who are committed to our fundamental values. We are looking for individuals who internalize and live the Jones Day Way.

Whether you join as a law student, a judicial clerk or a lateral, Jones Day provides opportunities for your development of a challenging and satisfying legal career with a global impact.

 

 

Our Offices

Jones Day's Atlanta Office empowers lawyers to make an immediate contribution. Because we operate as a team, every lawyer, whether a partner, associate, or summer associate, has an opportunity to provide meaningful input on cases, deals, and matters. As a result, each person's work responsibilities derive from his or her abilities—not title—and proven performance leads to greater opportunity.

On a daily basis, our lawyers are handling securities, product liability, and IP cases in state and federal courts; advising clients on deals that cross international borders; and helping clients on tax, environmental, employment, and antitrust matters.

Because Jones Day Atlanta is part of an integrated global law firm where the primary responsibility is delivering exceptional legal services to our clients, new lawyers have the opportunity to work with lawyers not just in Atlanta, but elsewhere in the nation and the world. On any given day, lawyers in Atlanta are working with lawyers in Dallas, New York, London, Shanghai, or any of Jones Day's other locations. We operate as one team, with the goal of providing outstanding service to our clients. As a result, at Jones Day Atlanta, new lawyers become part of one of the best legal practices in Atlanta − and the world.

Jones Day’s Boston Office is recognized as a leader in the local legal landscape, representing emerging companies as well as established pillars of the business community. Our lawyers offer the full complement of legal services, covering litigation, intellectual property, and transactional matters. In particular, the office is a hub for the Firm’s Banking and Finance, Life Sciences, and Financial Institutions Litigation practices.


Like every Jones Day office, Boston is fully integrated with the rest of the Firm. With its world-renowned research institutions and attractive quality of life, Boston is increasingly a global city, and our Boston attorneys regularly work on matters with colleagues in Jones Day offices in the Americas, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Australia. Even purely local matters frequently include team members from outside Boston. This collaborative approach ensures that "One Firm Worldwide" is more than just a catchphrase—it is a fundamental principle of how we practice law.

Despite its substantial growth, Boston remains a close-knit community, and our Boston Office reflects the character of the city. Ask any of our lawyers to tell you something about the person in the office next door, and we are sure you will learn something more meaningful than their practice group or law school. Our small size allows for myriad leadership positions even among our newest attorneys. Our summer social program is led by members of our New Lawyers Group, and work assignments are coordinated by second-year lawyers. Even our summer associates often have direct client contact.

New lawyers are attracted to Boston by its stimulating intellectual life, world-class sports teams, waterfront views, and attractive suburbs, and Jones Day’s Boston Office offers the opportunity to become a part of a global firm within a dynamic and collaborative environment.

Like every Jones Day office, Chicago is fully integrated with the rest of the Firm. Chicago attorneys regularly work on matters with colleagues in Jones Day offices in the Americas, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Australia.

Our Chicago attorneys routinely advise clients, at home and abroad, on matters ranging from multinational M&A transactions, international real estate projects, and major bankruptcies, to cutting-edge patent litigation and high-stakes multidistrict litigation.


Jones Day Chicago is a significant presence in the Chicago legal community, offering lawyers an enormous breadth of work, but remains small enough that Chicago lawyers and staff not only know each other, but also know each other’s' families. Outside of work, Jones Day Chicago lawyers and staff form tight bonds, participating in office sports teams, volunteering at local schools and even playing in, or enjoying, our office blues band. Lean staffing on client matters provides junior lawyers with substantial opportunities for development, and significant responsibility on cases and deals.

Jones Day Chicago provides unlimited opportunities for talented new lawyers seeking a sophisticated legal practice in a collaborative environment in a great American city.

Summer Program

We fully immerse our summer associates in the Firm to provide an accurate picture of what being a Jones Day lawyer is like. For starters, you'll be provided a mentor and receive extensive practical and substantive training, including a two day nationwide orientation and training program in Washington, DC. You'll learn about the practice of law not by watching, but by working side by side with Jones Day attorneys and getting involved in real assignments. And the mix of assignments is not one size fits all—you'll have the flexibility to select assignments from as few or as many practice groups as you are interested in sampling, including pro bono. Finally, at organized socials events and outings during the summer, you'll have the opportunity to get to know the Firm and our lawyers better, in addition to having a lot of fun of course.

Successful summer associates may be invited back to join us in a full time position, and indeed, the vast majority of our new lawyers join us after spending a summer at Jones Day.

 

New Lawyer Group

At Jones Day, we believe that great lawyering begins with each individual's careful decision about what type of lawyer he or she wants to be. That's why we give our new lawyers time—about a year—to explore and decide on a practice focus.

For more than three decades, Jones Day’s New Lawyers Group ("NLG") has provided our new lawyers in their first year with exposure to a variety of practices, lawyering styles, and training and development opportunities. We allow our associates—working together with the Firm—to discover their best fit and passion for a practice area, and become a better and more well-rounded lawyer in the process. This process greatly benefits our associates, the practices they join, the Firm, and our clients.

All lawyers joining our U.S. offices from law school (and many in our offices outside the U.S.) become members of the NLG for about a year (or perhaps longer outside the U.S.) before joining a practice. Judicial clerks also can elect to join the NLG.

If new lawyers arrive at Jones Day focused on a particular area of practice, they can hit the ground running doing assignments with that practice during their first year, consistent with the overall needs of our clients, However, if they seek exposure to a variety of practices, or want to explore a new area, the NLG program provides the flexibility and support to satisfy that curiosity. If a lawyer's interests change in the course of the year, the program is designed to respond to that change.

One or two partners designated as NLG coordinators in each office help solicit and coordinate assignments. The coordinators also help new lawyers network with, and earn their own assignments from, more senior lawyers who do the kind of work they want to do. The coordinators help acclimate new lawyers to the Firm, pair them with mentors, act as advocates and sounding boards, oversee an extensive year-long training program, provide informal feedback, conduct mid-year reviews, and assist with transfers into each of our practices.

One of the high points of the NLG year is the Firm's four-day New Lawyers Academy in Washington, DC. Each fall, new lawyers assemble from our more than 40 offices around the world to meet and network with each other and learn what it means to be One Firm Worldwide. Our Firm leaders, partners, and associates teach the new lawyers about Jones Day's culture, history, organization, and achievements and lead substantive and interactive training sessions. Every year, our new lawyers take away from the Academy a sense of great pride and excitement about being part of the Firm.

Training and Development

Jones Day recognizes that an associate's development into an exceptional lawyer is a journey that starts the first day and continues throughout a lawyer's career. The Firm provides ongoing professional development and training opportunities to lawyers at every level of practice.

Informal Training

Despite the merits of formalized CLE and other training programs, for most of our lawyers, the best and most effective training comes from daily interactions with their peers. Whether drafting a deal document, taking a deposition, or trying a case, the opportunity to do your best work and receive constructive feedback from a more experienced colleague will teach you to write more concisely, ask questions more clearly, organize a brief more effectively, and make more persuasive arguments.

 

Formal Training

The Firm also boasts a number of Firmwide training programs, including sessions on accounting for lawyers, fact investigation, client interviews, business development, negotiation skills, oral communications, and legal writing.
Our practices also conduct practice-specific training. Examples of recent programs include labor and employment developments, e-discovery, trial graphics, depositions, expert testimony, and antitrust basics.

In addition, Jones Day maintains a Privileged Membership with the Practicing Law Institute that entitles all our lawyers unlimited access to traditional live training programs, on-demand web programs, and live webcasts, among other benefits.

Mentorship

We recognize that there is no substitute for the direct and sustained involvement of our senior lawyers in assisting more junior lawyers in managing and developing their careers. Towards this end, each office maintains a mentorship program. In most instances, each Associate is paired with at least two mentors. One who is a more senior Associate and one who is a Partner. The aim is to provide two avenues for the Associate to raise concerns or ask questions and to provide two distinct perspectives to that Associate based upon the experience, practice and perspective of the mentor lawyers.

 

Annual Reviews

A final component to our development program is the annual review process in which each Associate is given detailed feedback on his or her performance throughout the past year by the senior lawyers who have supervised the Associate’s work. Each supervising lawyer prepares a written evaluation of the Associate, focusing on strengths, weaknesses, and suggested areas for improvement. The evaluations are discussed with the associate at the end of the year and are used in determining compensation for the following year. At this time, specific development opportunities are formulated for the coming year based upon combined input from the supervising lawyers and the Associate.

Compensation and Benefits

Compensation

Consistent with its position as a premier global law firm, Jones Day offers salary packages competitive within individual geographic markets. Associate compensation is reviewed annually in connection with our comprehensive evaluation process. Salary determinations are based upon merit, considering an individual's total contribution to the Firm, individual development, and effectiveness.

Tips

Jones Day understands that for lawyers and law students alike, the interview process is exhausting, exciting, and, yes, stressful. Jones Day seeks candidates who understand the Firm's principles and foundational values and want to be a productive and meaningful contributor to its future. Law students are looking for a long-term professional home that will support, challenge and reward them. To help you make the decision that's right for you, we offer the following suggestions.

 

Preparing for Interviews

  • Different law firms have different cultures, strengths, and priorities. Before you choose a firm, think about what's important to you.
  • Are you looking for an eat-what-you-kill compensation model, or do you prefer a more collaborative work environment?
  • How much do you value financial and firm stability?
  • Are you already certain which practice you want to join, or would you prefer the flexibility to work with a number of practices before joining one?

Research the Firm

Before you arrive for an interview, learn as much as you can about the firm. Resources to consult include:

  • 3Ls who have summered at firms you are considering;
  • Contacts in the legal community you seek to join;
  • NALP summaries, which provide numerical snapshots of firm size, practices, diversity, compensation, and other objective information; and
  • Firm web sites, which list areas of practice, provide biographies of lawyers, and, in some cases, supply additional information that gives insight into that firm's culture and priorities.

The On-Campus Interview

The on-campus interview is a short meeting with one or two people from the firm. Typically, the interviewer spends much of the interview asking you questions about your resume, interests, and goals. You'll also have a chance to ask questions about the firm.

  • Know your resume. Be prepared to answer questions about your academic achievements, work experience, and interests. If you list any publications on your resume, be prepared to discuss them substantively.
  • Know the firm and ask informed questions about it. Demonstrating that you have done your research indicates not only genuine interest in the firm, but also seriousness and professionalism.
  • Be yourself. Firms seek well-rounded, interested, and interesting candidates of all backgrounds and personalities. Let your best professional, enthusiastic self shine through in the interview.

The Call-Back Interview

Law firms typically call back a small percentage of the candidates they see on campus. When you receive a call-back offer, you will usually be instructed to contact the recruiting department to schedule the call-back interview and make the necessary travel arrangements. At most firms, call-back interviews last a half-day and consist of interviews with four or more lawyers. In addition to the recommendations for on-campus interviews above, keep the following suggestions in mind.

  • Treat everyone you meet with respect. Although your interviews will all be with lawyers, good firms listen to the opinions of their recruiting staff, assistants, and everyone else you encounter as a candidate.
  • Adapt. Each interviewer has a different style. Some are conversational, others quite formal. By responding appropriately to each interviewer's style, you'll make the interview a more enjoyable and successful experience.
  • Ask questions. The best way to demonstrate your genuine interest in a firm is by asking about aspects unique to that particular firm. You can ask the same question of more than one person during the interview process.
  • Take it all in. Get a feel for the atmosphere of the office. Does it seem friendly? When lawyers and staff pass each other in the hall, do they say hello?

After the Interview

  • You are not required to write thank-you notes, and there is no consensus as to whether they're advisable. However, if you do send them, proofread them very carefully and do not misspell your interviewers' names.
  • If you have additional questions, feel free to reach out to the lawyers with whom you interviewed or to the firm's recruiting department.
  • Firm guidelines allow you to keep an offer open no more than 28 days. You also are not supposed to keep more than five offers open at the same time. When you receive offers, be courteous to your classmates and the firms that have made offers to you by releasing any offers from firms you've eliminated from contention.

 

Travel Guidelines

Interview Travel

If Jones Day invites you to travel for an interview in one of our offices, we will provide the phone number of our travel desk, along with an expense reimbursement form. To ensure prompt reimbursement of your out-of-pocket expenses, submit your receipts no later than 20 days after the interview. Provide on the expense form the names of other law firms you visited on dates contiguous to your Jones Day interview. We will share expenses with those firms. If you cancel your interview for any reason, you are responsible for canceling your travel reservations. If you anticipate expenditures not provided for on this list, please contact the Recruiting Department before your travel date.


Air or Train Travel

Bill your air or train travel directly to Jones Day. The Recruiting Department will give you instructions for making reservations. If you prefer to drive to the interview location from a distant school, first coordinate your plan for expense reimbursement with the Recruiting Department.


Hotel Accommodations

Bill your hotel accommodations directly to Jones Day. One hotel night is deemed appropriate for each firm with which you interview; when traveling to an opposite coast, a two-night stay is covered. Cost of internet connection is also covered. Other charges must be approved in advance by the Recruiting Department. 


Ground Transportation

The Firm will reimburse the cost of ground transportation to and from the airport local to your school. If you choose to drive, we will reimburse the parking fee at the airport, but we do not pay mileage. Similarly, we will reimburse for round-trip taxi rides to the airport/office/hotel/next interview location. If you are interviewing in both Silicon Valley and San Francisco from out of town, please call in advance to discuss renting a car. Otherwise, rental car costs are generally not covered. 


Meals

You will be reimbursed for meals associated with each night spent in the hotel, not to exceed $70 total per 24-hour period. Please submit the credit card receipt and itemized bill (unless these expenses are included in the hotel bill). 


Not Eligible for Reimbursement

The following are not reimbursable: alcoholic drinks, long-distance telephone calls, dry-cleaning services, limousine services, meals and/or drinks for additional people, and other extra charges on the hotel bill.

Jones Day's intellectual property (IP) Legal Intern program enables technology specialists, engineers, and scientists with relevant advanced graduate degrees (e.g., M.S., Ph.D., M.D.) to gain IP law experience by working with talented attorneys while simultaneously attending law school in the evenings.  

Technology specialists, engineers, and scientists selected for the IP Legal Intern program are lawyers-in-training.  They work for the Firm during the day and attend an evening program at a local law school.  Jones Day provides financial assistance for law school tuition.  These lawyers-in-training work closely with our attorneys handling patent prosecution as well as gain experience in other aspects of IP law.  For example, IP Legal Interns may work on drafting and prosecuting patent applications, or supporting IP due diligences, patent landscape analyses, patent litigations, or post-grant proceedings (e.g., IPR, PGR, interferences).  If not already registered when they join the program, IP Legal Interns are expected to promptly become registered patent agents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office

To learn more about IP legal interns, please contact Adriane Antler or Nikolaos George, Ph.D.  You may also apply online.

 

 

Jones Day values the knowledge and experience judicial clerks gain from working closely with judges and justices and observing judicial proceedings, and for that reason many of our summer associates do clerkships before returning to Jones Day and we actively seek to hire other judicial clerks. More than 300 of our lawyers have served as clerks in federal or state trial and appellate courts, including a significant number of former U.S. Supreme Court clerks. We find that former law clerks appreciate the opportunities Jones Day offers to work on interesting, complex matters that draw on the skills developed through clerking. While many judicial clerks are interested in our appellate and general litigation work, including our Issues & Appeals Practice, a number of former clerks have joined Jones Day in other practices including M&A, Tax, Government Regulation, and Intellectual Property. Incoming clerks generally begin their careers at Jones Day in the New Lawyers Group, which allows them the freedom to explore various Firm practices before committing to one.

Generally, judicial clerks joining Jones Day directly from a federal court clerkship receive a competitive bonus, reflecting the value the Firm places on the clerkship experience. In addition, the Firm provides credit for the time spent clerking for both compensation and seniority purposes.

We welcome applications directly from judicial clerks.  We do not accept judicial clerk resumes from search firms.
