Mudd Law Offices
Small, exciting law firm with national practice on cutting-edge emerging technology and Internet issues seeks a full-time associate with 0-1 years of experience. We need a motivated individual to join our team and work to provide exceptional representation to our clients. Our practice is predominantly litigation based. As such, the position will involve exposure and work in both state and federal courts. That being said, the position will also involve exposure to transactional work and intellectual property issues. There may be document review, research, drafting, collaboration, appearing in court, and other related matters. The position requires someone interested in technology as well as at least one other different area of the law.
The position is full-time, salaried. This means that while the associate will be expected to normal work "face-time" hours (9 to 6), the associate will also be expected to work until the assignment has been completed as assigned.
This is not a six-figure position. Though we do not offer the same salaries as the larger firms in the Chicago area, we provide immediate hands on experience to varied aspects of extremely interesting areas of the law. Moreover, we emphasize a team environment that serves to produce a creative and productive work environment in which a young associate can grow and assume responsibility as capability is demonstrated.
You must have exceptional communication and writing skills that can be demonstrated in interviews and in writing samples. You must be superb at research for your experience. To apply for this position, you must also strive for excellence and perfection in the work you perform. You must be motivated, self-starting and able to work independently. At the same time, you absolutely must be a team player and work well with diverse personalities. You must have exceptional research skills and be familiar with Lexis. You must be able to work under pressure as well as accept criticism and direction as you grow in your legal profession.
You need not have post-graduate court experience. However, you should have some exposure to a courtroom and not be intimidated by any aspect thereof. You should have substantial writing experience. You should know what a motion happens to be. You should know the area of law we practice and why you want to practice in that area. You must submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample.
Social media experience will be a plus. Theoretical ponderings on the future of law and technology will be welcomed.
Illinois bar license required. A license in an additional state other than Illinois an added bonus.
