Summer Clerk Program

Kelly Hart & Hallman appreciates the importance of hiring talented, young lawyers. Nineteen of our young lawyers were named 2014 Texas Rising Stars by Texas Monthly magazine, which recognizes the top 2.5% of lawyers under age forty. Seventeen were named 2013 Top Attorneys in less than five years of practice by Fort Worth, Texas magazine. To continue this tradition of excellence, Kelly Hart actively seeks the most highly qualified law students with both excellent academic records and a commitment to teamwork and professionalism.

Kelly Hart's six week summer program introduces second year law students to the work environment they will experience as a first year associate. Each summer associate is partnered with two sponsors who guide them through the clerkship experience, facilitate introductions, advise on work assignments, provide feedback, and offer insight into the culture of Kelly Hart.

Summer associates are given the opportunity to split time between Transactional and Litigation practice groups. They also play active roles in ongoing cases and transactions and are provided opportunities to attend trials, closings, depositions, contract negotiations, hearings and client meetings. Consistent with Kelly Hart's commitment to provide pro bono legal services, summer associates participate in the Tarrant County Chapter of Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans Legal Clinic.

Kelly Hart's Summer Clerk Program also presents serveral opportunities to interact with our lawyers outside of the work environment and gain exposure to some of the best cultural and recreational resources our community has to offer.

In the fall of 2014, we will be conducting interviews of second-year law students at the following locations:  

  • Southern Methodist University School of Law
  • Baylor University School of Law
  • The University of Texas School of Law
  • Sunbelt Minority Job Fair in Dallas
  • Texas Tech University School of Law
  • Texas Wesleyan School of Law
