Hooper, Lundy & Bookman recruits from top law schools throughout the country, seeking well–rounded students with the highest quality academic performance and experience. Criteria used as part of our hiring process include academic record, law review, work experience, extracurricular activities and interests.
Generally, we seek students with a class standing in the top third of their class. While we are particularly impressed by students with a demonstrated interest in health care law or with employment experience in the health care field, we are also interested in hiring capable applicants without such backgrounds.
Our Hiring Committee, which is composed of partners and associates, is primarily responsible for hiring new law school graduates, as well as associates for our Summer Program. Applicants will generally be interviewed by members of the committee, as well as by other lawyers of the firm. We interview on a number of law school campuses throughout the country each year, as well as at the firm’s offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The lawyers currently practicing at Hooper, Lundy & Bookman come from many of the nation’s top law schools. As the number of law schools offering health law concentrations increases, we are also expanding our recruiting and hiring efforts to a wide range of law schools across the country.
The firm is committed to diversity in its hiring practices with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation and has adopted the Mansfield and Rooney rules in attorney recruiting.
In addition to our traditional recruiting program, we also offer a Summer Associate Program. The objective of this program is to attract the highest caliber of legal talent with the intent of developing a long–term relationship after graduation. Our considerations in selecting summer associates are similar to those we use to hire other associates. Our summer program is designed to provide summer associates with broad exposure to our firm and our health care practice. Summer associates are given opportunities for legal research projects, writing, attending hearings, and assisting with depositions.
