For Second Year, Vault Names Shook Summer Associate Program "Most Fun"

Shook, Hardy & Bacon ranked highly in Vault’s 2017 law firm rankings across regional and practice level categories.

In addition to being ranked No. 1 for “Most Fun Summer Associate Program,” Shook placed:

  • No. 5 for its Product Liability practice nationwide;
  • No. 8 on the “Best Summer Associate Program” list;
  • No. 18 in the Midwest regional rankings; and
  • No. 24 among “Best Law Firms to Work For.”

The summer program rankings are based on input from more than 18,000 associates, where respondents gauged how well the program prepared them for practice as well as how much fun it was.

For practice area rankings, associates are asked by Vault to vote for up to three firms they consider strongest in their own practice area, but they are not permitted to vote for their own firm. Rankings indicate the firms that received the highest percentage of votes.

Regional rankings are based on scores from associates who work in the region. Associates were asked to rate firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on how prestigious they consider that firm in their region.
