We place great value on incoming law students. Talented law students energize Baker Botts. They refresh and replenish the firm with charismatic attitudes and appetites for learning. They make us stronger with their individual approaches to the law and to life.
Baker Botts lawyers are selected from the highest-ranking graduates among the best law schools in the country. We have formally established a set of core attributes we seek in candidates. This helps us find and select potential lawyers who will succeed here and best serve our clients. Some of these attributes are inherent in the individual, such as self-confidence, dedication and commitment to excellence. Other attributes are talents that can be developed over time, such as creative problem solving and relationship building.
Cultivating these core attributes also guides our training and development program. Baker Botts is diligent in developing its new lawyers through professional skills training and a variety of continuing legal education courses offered by our own colleagues. You will not stop learning here, something that is vital to your success as a lawyer at any career stage. Baker Botts is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
