Baker Hostetler—The law firm of choice
for the nation’s leading law school students

Professional Development
We invest in our lawyers. In providing training, meaningful
work assignments, mentoring and feedback, we are
committed to your success.

Workplace of Choice
Top students at leading law schools choose Baker Hostetler
for the opportunity to do substantive, challenging work in a
collegial and collaborative environment, while having some
fun and a life outside of work.

We are committed to hiring and retaining talented, diverse
lawyers with a passion for success—for themselves and for
our clients.

Without question, Baker exceeded my expectations this
summer. The attorneys were genuinely good-natured and
supportive, the work was highly substantive and tailored to
our interests, and the social events were classy, fun, and
often involved uncommon opportunities in D.C.

With only a handful of summer associates, the experience
seemed more collegial than what one might find at larger
firms. Also, because cases are not overstaffed, I regularly
found myself working on real, substantive matters either
directly with a partner, or alongside one other associate.
I never expected that I would be personally interviewing
witnesses on-site for a client’s tort case, or making a pre-
sentation in front of 30 people at the firm’s monthly litigation
meeting, but this summer I did both.

Training and Mentoring
Baker Hostetler is committed to training and professional
development	for	all	of	our	new	attorneys—whether	first-year	
associates or laterals.

   Associate Academy
   Four	days	of	intensive	seminars	and	training	for	first-
   year associates, including:
   — Business development
   — Career development
   — Communication skills
   — Effective legal negotiation
   — Firm management and culture
   — Professional liability

   Orientation and Mentoring Program
   Our	mentoring	program	matches	each	first-year	
   associate and lateral associate with a mentor who
   assists in his or her training and development.

   Associates are advised of their progress on a regular
   basis. This ensures they have the feedback they need
   to move forward in their careers. For new associates,
   these reviews are ongoing, with formal, written
   evaluations occurring semiannually.

   Mid-Level Training
   During an associate’s third or fourth year, he or she
   participates in a multiday training program targeted to
   the associate’s developing practice.

Howe, left and Christy Monier, right, at the 2009 Associate

The Associate Academy was perfectly organized to allow
associates to interact and develop friendships that will
benefit us for years to come.

While the days were full, there was just the right mix of work
and fun to keep the program flowing and interesting. Our
first event was a wine tasting which was both informative
and a perfect way for everyone to interact and get to know
one another.

The most valuable aspect, for me, was a communication
workshop. In law school, we all learned to write perfectly
organized memos—laying out our key points upfront,
recapping the issue to be addressed, and then logically
organizing the memo so it is easy for the reader. After I
started working I realized that most partners prefer that
I simply tell them what my research has revealed rather than
drafting a memo.

In the short term, I will benefit by having more confidence in
my work product and my position in the Firm. In the future,
I will benefit by having colleagues in practice areas through-
out the Firm that I feel comfortable contacting when I need
assistance. In addition, I gained valuable skills regarding
negotiation strategy and communication with both clients
and partners.

During my interviews, I was told that I would receive ‘real’
and ‘challenging’ work. Baker Hostetler has not disappointed
me and has definitely exceeded my expectations for this
summer. I have worked on a wide range of issues dealing
with administrative law, class action claims, environmental
law, trademark infringement, real estate contracts, and
employment litigation.

Even though Baker is a large Firm, I’ve been given the
opportunity to draft actual motions, attend depositions,
interact with clients, and observe trial preparations. Partners
and associates are constantly giving practical advice and
feedback concerning client correspondence, efficient
researching and how to balance legal work with community
outreach projects. Overall, the Firm gives a great deal of
responsibility and hands on experiences to its associates,
and I have truly enjoyed my time at Baker Hostetler.

Professional Development
Rounding out our summer program are seminars on
the Firm’s practice areas and topics of legal interest. In
addition, many social events are designed to encourage
casual interaction among our summer associates, the
lawyers and other professional staff. An important element
of job satisfaction in any career is developing positive
relationships at work.

Our summer associates gain in-depth experience across a
broad range of practices. They work closely with some of
the most skilled lawyers in the country and many successful
students receive offers in the fall of their second year to
return, and at the end of summer of their third year to join
the Firm upon graduation.

Associate Academy exceeded all my expectations. It was a
lot of fun, well taught, and a great growth opportunity.

It helped me improve on important skills, such as probing
for information, and it helped make me more aware of what
partners are looking for in my work product.

The hands on sessions, particularly the negotiating and
client interview skills, were most valuable to me. Nothing
teaches like experience.

Program Structure
Since our summer program is designed to give law
students exposure to many facets of the Firm’s practice,
summer associates attend conferences, “Lunch-and-Learn”
practice group sessions, depositions, trials and other court
proceedings, labor arbitrations, administrative proceedings
and business transaction closings. We closely monitor work
assignments to ensure that summer associates work on
multiple projects and with a variety of lawyers in different
practice areas.

Throughout the summer program, lawyers review completed
work with the summer associates. In addition, several
of	our	offices	use	writing	review	committees	to	provide	
constructive feedback. Advisors work with each summer
associate, monitoring workload and assisting in professional
                             Many of the firms that I applied
                             to offered diversity scholarships
                             comparable to the Paul D.
                             White Scholarship, but those
                             programs often accepted
                             applicants only from law schools
                             in the same metropolitan area
                             as this Firm. Baker Hostetler’s
                             willingness to accept applicants
                             from all geographic locations
                             affirmed its reputation as a
                             cosmopolitan Firm willing to
                             seek out and support talent in
                             all places it may be found.

                             I was also impressed that there
                             was not just one Paul D.
                             White scholar, but several of
                             the offices had scholarship
                             recipients. This reiterated
                             that this was a Firmwide
                             commitment to encouraging
diversity. Receiving the scholarship was the critical factor in
my decision to spend the summer at Baker Hostetler. I have
Paul D. White and those who preserve his legacy to thank
for the learning and professional development the summer
experience afforded me, and for helping me to realize the
first steps in beginning my career as an attorney.

Commitment to Inclusion and Diversity
Baker Hostetler has made a long-term commitment to
incorporate diversity within our workforce. We devote
substantial time and resources to the recruitment, retention
and development of minority and women lawyers.

We recognize that in order to serve the needs of our diverse
client base, our lawyer population needs to be equally

The Firmwide Diversity Committee, established over
10	years	ago,	oversees	a	number	of	diversity	initiatives	

— A new Diversity Fellowship Program which was
  established in 2009. The Program provides up to a
  $25,000	award.	The	amount	of	$10,000	is	paid	with	
  a summer associate position with the Firm and the
  remaining	$15,000	is	contingent	upon	receiving	and	
  accepting a full-time offer with the Firm.
— Minority Attorney Conference which brings together
  our minority lawyers, top Firm management, clients
  and outside experts to discuss strategies to increase
  recruitment, retention and promotion of minority lawyers.
— Paul D. White Scholarship program, which annually
  provides law students of Black or African American,
  Hispanic	or	Latino,	Native	Hawaiian	or	Pacific	Islander,	
  Asian, American Indian or Alaska Native descent with
  a	paid	summer	clerkship	and	a	$7,500	cash	award.	
  The	Firm	has	expended	more	than	$1.5	million	in	
  scholarships and clerkships for minority law students
  since	the	program’s	inception	in	1997.
— Establishment of a Women’s Committee in	2004,	and	
  the	Firm’s	first	“Women	Partners	Retreat”	in	2005.	The	
  Firm also sponsored two events for the ABA Women
  Rainmakers, a component of the ABA Law Practice
  Management Section.
— Recruiting Strategies that include actively soliciting
  minority and women candidates through targeted on-
  campus interviews and lateral attorney interviews,
  participation in minority recruitment job fairs and the
  appointment of minority and women attorneys to our
  Hiring Committees. For the last ten years, over half of
  our new associates have been women and minorities.
Pro Bono Opportunities
The Firm has a long-standing commitment to pro bono work.
We are aware that, by virtue of our resources, we have an
obligation to assist those in need. When the Firm accepts
a pro bono matter, we are committed to supporting that
representation, with the same standards of professionalism,
excellence and respect that apply to the work we do for any

Making pro bono work opportunities available to our
lawyers, we also believe, enhances our professional culture
and our lawyers’ skills and sense of professionalism and
public service.

agreements, and negotiation of almost every type of
agreement, from leases to licensing of videos.

staff are the Firm’s most valuable resource. We strive to
be a workplace of choice and are committed to creating a
rewarding work environment that offers opportunities for
interesting work, a supportive and collegial atmosphere and

We expect that the talented and dedicated professionals
we hire will have a desire to make a difference in the com-
munities in which they live and work. Our lawyers and staff
are encouraged to become active in their communities and
a	number	of	our	offices	have	organized	community	service	
initiatives, including holiday “Adopt-A-Family” programs,
book	&	school	supply	drives,	tutoring	programs	at	grade	
schools and volunteering at “Habitat for Humanity” home
sites. Additionally, the Firm offers support to a wide range of
organizations across the country related to education, social
