WINRIGHT – STUDENTS
At Winright Law, we appreciate and are grateful for the students that we invite to join and join Winright Law. It is our hope that we can provide our students with skillsets that you cannot learn in school and that will jumpstart their career that will help them grow personally and lead them to a life that is more fulfilling. To do so, we are committed to providing our students with every opportunity to learn, grow and stretch to the highest level of their ability and potential.
In turn, all of our students will become part of a fast-paced and innovative culture, and join a passionate and dedicated team that works together to not only provide our clients with the highest possible level of service and advice, but also assist Winright to be a leader of innovative practices in the legal industry, by consistently providing better legal services to our clients and a better work environment for our employees. It is our aspiration to build a workplace culture that can be paralleled to Zappos or Google eventually.
Students are asked for and accountable for their commitment to deliver outstanding quality and results that exceed client expectations.
What to Expect
We have three categories of WINRIGHT – STUDENTS:
- Students of Law
- Students of Business
- Student Volunteers
Students of Law are typically students who are currently in law school, have completed law school, or are learning to be legal assistants or paralegals. Dependent on the number of Students of Law at that time, Students of Law are either placed in a rotation between solicitor’s work and litigation, or if no other Students of Law are part of the law firm at that time, then Students of Law are given a less structured approach and their work is based on needs of the law firm at that time.
Students of Business are typically students who are enrolled in or have experience or interest in certain business areas of the law firm, particularly marketing, business development, operations, accounting, finance, HR, or tech. Students of Business generally are placed into a business group of their particular interest where a manager and other team members involved in that group brainstorm and collaborate on ideas.
Student Volunteers are typically students who are in high school or undergraduate studies and want to have basic office administrative experience. Student Volunteers join our administrative team to help with basic office duties, client intakes, and areas that require administrative assistance at that time. This is a great volunteer position for students who are potentially interested in pursuing a law firm placement in the future but would like a temporary placement to see what it entails.
Job Offers: Many of our students do end up being employed on a full-time, part-time, or contract basis with our law firm. Although we inform all of our students to not expect such an offer, it is not unusual that our students become vital team members of our law firm that we hope to continue to work with our team moving forward. It is important that you inform us if that is your hope so we can consider your candidacy as a full-fledged team member.
How to Apply
If you’re interested in applying for any of our WINRIGHT – STUDENT positions, please email [email protected] with your resume, cover letter or writing sample, transcript, and any reference letters or contacts you may have. We typically accept applications at any time of the year but our needs are dependent on current students at that time.
We look forward to hearing from you.
