Judicial Clerks

The firm encourages applications from current judicial clerks who are looking to begin private practice, provided that the judge for whom you are clerking deems the timing of such applications appropriate.

We recognize the value of your experience, and we reward judicial clerks who come directly to the firm following their clerkship with one year’s credit for purposes of both salary and partnership consideration. We also strongly encourage law students and summer associates to apply for judicial clerkships and, where feasible, to complete their clerkships prior to joining the firm as associates. 

Professional Development

Our firm is fully committed to our lawyers' professional development. We offer a comprehensive Lawyer Development Program to assist you in reaching your short and long-term professional goals. The program is designed to facilitate the development of the skills and competencies that are essential for superior performance - Legal Excellence, Client Service and Development, and Leadership and Management.

The Lewis Roca Trial Academy is an intensive program for litigation attorneys wishing to develop or enhance their trial skills. The program is offered as a continuation of basic litigation training already in place at the firm. Using the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) model, the program consists of a realistic jury trial with witnesses, jurors and a judge with participating attorneys presenting both sides of the case on successive days. Senior firm trial lawyers provide coaching and advice as well as preparatory sessions on such trial techniques as courtroom protocol and behavior, openings and closings, direct and cross examination, evidentiary procedures and objections, and common hearsay and foundation issues. Debriefing with judge and jury after trial provides valuable feedback and constructive suggestions. The firm then aggressively seeks to put Academy graduates into real trials and adversary proceedings.

In addition, as a Lewis Roca lawyer, you have access to a variety of internal and external opportunities that will support development at different stages of your career. These include mentoring, shadowing, in-house and external training, semi-annual assessments, individual development plans, annual 1:1 check-ins, partnership progress meetings, community leadership programs, and association memberships.               

Quality of Life

There are other things in life besides law. Lewis Roca lawyers have sophisticated practices without sacrificing everything else. We expect you to spend time with your family and friends. We expect you to pursue and expand your hobbies and interests. We understand that good lawyers are healthy, well-balanced people first. At Lewis Roca we strive to balance hard work and quality of life.

Our lawyers want to lead full lives personally as well as professionally and the firm values that balance. We encourage our lawyers to take an active role in the community and the Bar, and we support their efforts to do so. Our lawyers are dedicated to a variety of charitable, pro bono, and community activities and serve on many non-profit, bar association, and minority bar boards and committees.
