Drive Your Growth Forward
We’re dedicated to developing the next generation of lawyers, which means we’re committed to preparing you for the future. You will hone your craft in courtrooms and boardrooms and learn crucial skills that will immediately be put into practice with our clients. Here you can tackle sophisticated work alongside our precedent-setting team, inspire communities and build a rewarding career. What are you waiting for?
Education & Development
From classroom-style seminars (tailored to specific practices and industries) to core skills instruction and mentoring programs, we create meaningful opportunities for personal and professional development. By joining Balch, you’re kick-starting your career at a firm that is committed to giving you the tools you need to succeed.
Additionally, we encourage our attorneys and staff to participate in continuing legal education courses, pro bono cases, business development initiatives, time management training and more, which fuels your success by keeping you on the cutting edge of the legal industry.
Customize Your Career
“Flexibility” isn’t just an HR buzzword. It’s essential to achieving professional goals and maintaining a healthy work-life balance along the way. At Balch, we encourage you to design a career path that best suits your career aspirations, personal commitments and family priorities.
We understand a full-time schedule isn’t for everyone and that not all attorneys want to become law firm owners. By providing opportunities for alternative career paths, you can create an advancement track that empowers you to achieve your definition of success – both personally and professionally.
One of our signature programs, Trial Training, is a one day, deposition and trial advocacy training that allows you to test your “textbook knowledge” before setting foot in the courtroom. This annual program includes real courtroom experience and an opportunity to learn from litigators across the country, who have broad and diverse backgrounds both within and beyond the legal industry. As you work side by side with these accomplished leaders, you’ll also forge lasting relationships.
Who We Look For
On Campus Interviews
Each year, we host a Summer Associate Program for 2L and 1L students in our Atlanta, Birmingham, Gulfport, Jackson, and Montgomery offices. Although our 2L class if full, we are actively recruiting 1L candidates through the Spring On-Campus Interview (OCI) season. If you are a current 1L attending a law school where we are not conducting official On-Campus Interviews (OCIs) and you are interested in applying to our 2023 Summer Associate Program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to apply.
