Hiring Criteria

Seward & Kissel is selective in its hiring standards.  We look to hire outstanding students and lawyers.  We are interested in well-rounded, mature individuals of demonstrated intellectual capacity and promising legal ability who can quickly assume a share of the Firm's responsibilities.  These individuals will have shown excellence and initiative in their college and law school academics, as well as in their extracurricular activities.

The Firm makes commitments for employment to outstanding graduates who may have judicial clerkship obligations even though such obligations may defer commencement of their employment.
