Careers

Summer Associate Program

Our Summer Associate Program provides law students with a unique opportunity to experience life in our law firm. The purpose of the program is to identify and make offers of employment to those summer associates who demonstrate exceptional legal skills and the ability to become productive members of the firm. The number of summer associates hired is determined by expected hiring needs for future associates. The Lewis Thomason Summer Associate Program offers a balance of social activities and real-world work assignments and includes:

  • An orientation in which shareholders and associates share information on their clerking and courtroom experiences and offer general practice tips
  • Extensive training on computer systems and other resources
  • The assignment of a shareholder mentor and a young associate mentor
  • Attendance at depositions, client meetings, court hearings, mediations, trials, internal practice group meetings and monthly associate training meetings
  • Formal and informal feedback
  • Regular social activities with associates and shareholders

Recruitment Process

We participate in on-campus recruiting at the University of Tennessee, University of Memphis and Vanderbilt University. Students at other schools may submit resumes by mail to the appropriate office. Recruitment for second-year law students is completed by October for the following summer. Recruitment for first-year students begins in February.

On occasion, we recruit lateral attorneys to fill a need or take advantage of an opportunity.

Lewis Thomason is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants receive consideration for employment, and all employees are treated equally during the employment process without regard to race, religion, color, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, physical capabilities or marital or family status.

Lewis Thomason does not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities with regard to any aspect of employment and will make all reasonable efforts to accommodate the known disabilities of employees who are otherwise qualified to perform the essential duties of the job involved.

“From my first year forward, I only clerked at one firm. But, more importantly, I never looked for another clerkship. Within one week of working here, I knew this is where I wanted to be.”

“I’ve been with Lewis Thomason since my first year of law school. It feels like home, and my fellow Lewis Thomason attorneys and staff members feel like family. I can’t imagine a more intelligent, dedicated and fun group of people to work with.”
