Hiring a MAC lawyer is a significant commitment from the firm. Every time a new lawyer is added to the firm, MAC makes the commitment to welcome that lawyer to the MAC family. That commitment comes with its own vetting process through the Hiring Committee.
Our Hiring Committee is comprised of shareholders, directors, and young associates who all lend their unique perspectives and opinions to the hiring process. The Hiring Committee provides the Shareholders and Directors with its recommendations for hiring new attorneys and summer associates once the interview process is complete. The hiring process is one we believe helps bring strong candidates that can add to, and thrive in, the unique environment at MAC.
You may have heard that our hiring process is different from most. When you arrive for the interview, we do not ask you your rank, serial number, grade point average, or LSAT score. We already have read your resume; we have already read your writing sample; now, we want to get to know you. We want to see how you think. To accomplish that task, we set forth some very basic hypotheticals to get your perspective of how you would work through the issue. This way, we get to know how you analyze the real world issues that arise for young attorneys when dealing with opposing counsel, clients and the court. We believe this process is the best barometer of the skills we know attorneys need to be successful.
While this process may be unusual and require a larger time commitment from the Hiring Committee and the candidates, we believe it is an essential piece of our continuing growth as a firm. Our commitment to each new candidate is a commitment to be part of our family. We take it seriously.
If you are interested in joining the MAC team, please email a copy of your cover letter, resume, and short writing sample (containing approximately 5 pages of analysis) to email@example.com. Our law firm can only be improved by accomplished and dynamic lawyers who share our vision of quality service, quality work product and quality of life.
