We have had between 2-3 summer associates in recent years, and we expect to have three summer associates in 2015.
Assignments and training
Summer associates rotate through each of the practice groups in the Baltimore office and work closely with partners and associates on a wide range of assignments. The summer associates attend training events hosted by the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. offices.
Lawyers from the Baltimore office conduct interviews at several area law schools. Lawyers from the Washington, D.C. office also conduct interviews at numerous other schools for the Baltimore office.
Associates must meet our quality and firm citizenship expectations in order to be considered for class level bonuses, and are expected to work a productivity minimum of 2,000 annualized billable hours. If an associate meets 1,800 billable hours, then 50 pro bono hours worked are counted toward bonus consideration, if an associate meets 1,850 billable hours, all pro bono hours worked are counted toward bonus consideration. In addition associates may also receive discretionary bonus consideration for significant achievements in legal project management and/or contributions to business/client development efforts.
Hogan Lovells is committed to supporting our people in reaching their full potential and using agile work arrangements to develop their careers, consistent with the needs of our clients and the firm. We recognize that our workforce needs to have greater flexibility in their working arrangements. All Hogan Lovells lawyers and business services team members make take advantage of agile work arrangements at any time in their career. Agile working incorporates both time (flexible working) and location (remote working) flexibly. Agile work arrangements may include reduced hours expectations, flexible hours in the office, effective use of remote working or telecommuting, job sharing, as well as other combinations or approaches.
Pro bono commitment
We encourage a strong commitment to pro bono work. Our lawyers have demonstrated their appreciation of the opportunity to work in this region by their significant involvement in community and civic projects and have, in turn, been recognized for the work they do, including:
- We received the 2008 Herbert S. Garten Special Project Award from the Pro Bono Resource Center of Maryland for our work on the Kinship Care Resource Manual published by the Department of Social Services in Baltimore County, Maryland.
- In 2008 an associate in the Baltimore office received the Maryland Legal Aid Young Lawyers Leadership Award and the office was recognized for its contributions made to the organization.
- In addition to a wide range of individual and entity clients, our lawyers have represented the Baltimore County Department of Social Services; a domestic violence center in a real estate transaction; a Washington, D.C. church in a complex joint venture transaction; and a Baltimore City agency in corporate and real estate matters. Our lawyers have also served as settlement mediators in Maryland district courts.
Other examples of pro bono work performed by Baltimore lawyers include:
- Settlement with Maryland State Police in Interstate 95 Racial Profiling Case: Our lawyers, working with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Maryland ACLU, reached a landmark settlement on behalf of six drivers who were racially profiled and subjected to unwarranted searches along Interstate 95 in Maryland by troopers with the Maryland State Police.
- Baltimore County Department of Social Services Kinship Care Manual: Our lawyers have been recognized for their pro bono work in developing the Kinship Care Resource Manual, a guide for the staff of the Baltimore County Department of Social Services who work with children and their caregivers.
