Associates

Dykema seeks associates who demonstrate that in addition to excellent legal skills they possess ambition, imagination, superior intellect and personal and professional integrity. We hire people whom we believe will be outstanding lawyers, enjoy successful careers, and become members in our firm.

Our recruiting effort is extensive. The Recruiting Committee interviews students from law schools throughout the country. We also welcome applications from judicial law clerks and lateral attorney candidates.

Associates participate in our recruiting efforts, and we give substantial weight to their evaluation of candidates. Hiring decisions are made without regard to age, religion gender, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status or domestic partner relationship, physical characteristics or disability.
