Our associates will be the future leaders of Jenner & Block, so we encourage their active involvement in firm life and in outside professional and community organizations.
Associates are encouraged to participate in various firm committees and initiatives, such as our pro bono and hiring committees, the summer program and various associate training and development projects. We have an elected Associates Committee that includes representatives from all five offices. The Associates Committee meets regularly with firm leaders to share information and collaborate on areas of interest. Associates also serve on the Associates Board of our Diversity Committee and are members of the firms’ six affinity groups. Mid-level and senior associates serve as mentors to summer associates and first-year associates.
Jenner & Block enjoys a long and proud tradition of being leaders in the legal, local and national communities in which we live. Many associates participate in a wide range of external activities. Associates are encouraged to be active members of bar associations including the ABA and state and local bars. Associates are active in civic, charitable, and religious organizations, alumni programs, boards and a wide range of other professional organizations.
