Size and program duration
We typically have two to three summer associates who participate in a 10-week program.
Assignments and training
The size of the office provides an opportunity to have one-on-one contact with partners, a wide range of assignments and training and direct involvement in cases (no rotation system in Miami). Summer associates are assigned a partner and associate mentor that oversees their assignments and ensures their full integration into the office. Typically, summer associates will work on two to four active assignments during any given summer; some will be long-term projects, while others will be of a shorter duration.
Summer associates will have opportunities to attend hearings, oral arguments, depositions, and client meetings, to meet judges, and to participate in pro bono projects. In addition, several social activities are planned throughout the summer program.
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
All Hogan Lovells lawyers are encouraged to become involved in legal representation in the public interest. Our Pro Bono practice has handled hundreds of matters in recent years, including a number of high-profile “impact cases” of national importance:
- The Miami office secured a landmark pro bono victory for the Public Defender of the 11th Circuit of Florida, in its excessive workload litigation, spending more than 3,500 pro bono hours on the representation. The victory provided much needed relief to tremendously overworked public defenders and gave meaning to the Gideon decision in Florida.
- The Miami office was awarded the L. Clayton Nance Award by the Florida Public Defender Association and the Beacon of Justice Award from the National Legal Aid & Defender Association for our pro bono work on behalf of the Public Defender of the 11th Circuit of Florida.
- The Miami office was awarded the “Outstanding Large Law Firm Pro Bono Award” in 2011 by the Dade County Bar Association (DCBA) and Legal Aid Society. Our Miami lawyers provided the highest number of pro bono hours of free legal services to the indigent and those most in need within the community.
- The Miami office was awarded the Florida Supreme Court’s Chief Justice’s Commendation in 2007 for the firm’s “extraordinary commitment” in the provision of pro bono legal services.
In addition to working on a variety of pro bono projects initiated in Miami and other firm offices, our lawyers along with staff members also volunteer to lend a hand to our Touch charities Camillus House and Lotus House on projects such as:
- Lunch-Bag Prep, we prepared over 300 Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches and hand delivered them to Camillus House for distribution to the community
- Our annual Toiletry Drive collects shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste and deodorant that we donate to Camillus House who offer men and women daily showers that serve 500 to 600 individuals per week.
- Serving dinner to over 100 residents of Camillus House and others who are less fortunate in the community
