We stand for
Huie has built a long-standing reputation as fearless litigators who approach every case prepared to go to trial and equipped to win. So recruiting the right team members is paramount to growing our firm and continuing to provide the service and results our clients expect. We rely heavily on our summer associate program to fill associate positions. Our vibrant summer associate program provides in-depth insight into our firm, attorneys and areas of practice. A typical day includes brief writing, legal research, witness interviewing and assisting with deposition and trial preparation. Summer associates also accompany attorneys to hearings, depositions, client meetings, witness interviews and trials to gain valuable litigation experience.
Summer associates are assigned mentors who provide feedback and guidance on projects. To foster relationship building among summer associates, mentors and all Huie attorneys, the summer associate program includes numerous social, recreational and educational events.
The summer associate program provides in-depth insight into our firm, attorneys and areas of practice.
Our summer associates are a diverse group of talented individuals seeking to gain invaluable, hands-on litigation experience. The number of available summer associate positions is determined by a realistic evaluation of our expected hiring needs. We conduct on-campus interviews at The University of Alabama School of Law and Cumberland Law School at Samford University. Interested law students should check with their Career Service Office for deadlines to submit materials and for interview dates.
Additionally, we are always interested in meeting and discussing employment opportunities for all qualified law students and lateral attorneys.
We value diversity and inclusion at Huie, and we actively seek to promote our efforts formally and informally in our office and while working on assignment. Our team represents clients with diverse backgrounds, and discrimination of any kind is strictly prohibited. We foster a culture where differences are valued, respected and embraced.

As legal professionals, we consider it our duty and a privilege to keep equality at the forefront of day-to-day operations and to leave a lasting, meaningful impact on the many communities we serve.
