Below we explain what we are looking for, what a successful candidate can expect in return from us, and how to apply to join the firm.
What we are looking for: We require strong credentials from a top undergraduate institution as well as demonstrated success in prior employment or extracurricular pursuits. No prior legal experience is necessary, but a desire to learn and excel in a team oriented environment is essential. We require a two-year commitment and a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.6.
Job description: Our legal analysts perform a variety of tasks that ensure the efficient operation of our practice and our success in court. At our firm, attorneys and analysts work in a collaborative environment where everyone plays a role in producing the best work possible. Legal analysts conduct research and analysis, craft arguments, and create multimedia presentations used in court before judges and juries. The amount and degree of difficulty of the substantive projects assigned to each analyst depend on the analyst’s performance, motivation, and initiative.
After leaving our firm, past legal analysts have gone on to top U.S. law schools (such as Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Pennsylvania), prestigious graduate programs, and positions in various other industries including finance, tech and government.
Compensation: The annual salary for our legal analysts is up to $75,000 for first-year analysts, consisting of a base salary of $60,000, plus a prorated year-end bonus of up to $15,000. Second-year analysts will receive a base salary of $65,000, plus the year-end bonus of up to $15,000, plus a $20,000 retention bonus after working for two full years (resulting in up to $100,000 in total second-year compensation). We also provide a $2,500 relocation bonus and benefits including medical coverage, a dental plan, and fully-vested participation in a retirement plan (the retirement plan is vested after the first year).
How to apply: Please send your cover letter, resume, transcript (may be unofficial), and one writing sample by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach your materials as a single PDF in the order previously mentioned. No phone calls, please.
