Information for Search Firms
The following guidelines have been established to ensure a consistent and efficient working relationship between Arnold & Porter and the legal search firms who contact our Attorney Recruitment Department regarding associate candidates.
Arnold & Porter does not accept unsolicited associate applications. You may only submit applications for associate positions that are posted on the Current Attorney Opportunities section of our website. Application submissions will not be considered complete, and will not be reviewed, unless they include a current resume and law school transcript. We will not consider any application in which the candidate is not identified by name.
Arnold & Porter requires that you submit each associate candidate's application to the office in which you seek to place the candidate using the procedure described below, and direct all further contact with us regarding the application to the recruiting contact in that office. Applications must be submitted to our offices by the Search Firm through Arnold & Porter's online application submission system. You must follow these procedures without exception. We will not pay you a placement fee with respect to a candidate, nor recognize the candidate as having been introduced to us by you, if you submit the candidate's application to us in any other manner.
In order to ensure that we comply with our government reporting obligations, Search Firms must include each candidate's current email or mailing address when completing the on-line application submission process. This contact information will solely be used to distribute voluntary self-identification forms to candidates in order to solicit their race, ethnicity, gender, disability and veteran status information in accordance with our recordkeeping obligations.
