Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP offices that traditionally hire summer associates are Chicago, Minneapolis and Rockford. If you are a 2L in law school, please submit your resume, unofficial law school transcript and a writing sample to the Recruiting Department, during your first semester of your second year.

We offer one diverse student at DePaul University College of Law, Hinshaw's DePaul Diversity Scholarship. The student is awarded $20,000 towards law school tuition, as well as a summer associate position in our Chicago office following the student’s second year of law school. We begin accepting applications for the scholarship during the first semester of the student’s second year of law school. Please refer to the listing on DePaul’s Simplicity site for the submission deadline date. If you are interested in submitting an application, please submit to the Recruiting Department your resume, most recent transcript from the DePaul University College of Law, transcripts from all other colleges or universities attended (undergraduate, master’s program, etc.), and personal statement (one page) describing your reasons for studying law, your career goals, the qualities and talents you will bring to the legal profession, and how your professional interests and goals align with the practice focus and culture of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP. We also recommend that you include two letters of recommendation from academic instructors and/or employers with your application materials.
