How does a law firm over 140 years old make it so long? By starting over again each year to attract intelligent and dedicated young men and women in whom we can entrust the excellence and traditions of Jones Cork, LLP. Recruiting law students for summer clerkship and associate positions is a process designed to identify a few talented people each year who can join us as we start the next 140 years.

While among the largest law firms outside of Atlanta, attorneys at Jones Cork, LLP take pride that we work in an environment that combines hard work with friendship, an early opportunity to do responsible work with unhindered access to seasoned partners, and the stability of an established practice with the prospect that each attorney can make his or her mark in the firm and the community.
While hiring decisions take into consideration all aspects of a candidate’s qualifications, the firm typically seeks candidates for employment who have achieved a rank in the upper third of their class, participated in law journal or moot court activities, and demonstrated a capability to manage both their classwork and extracurricular activities in college and law school.
The firm is committed to the training of associates. A new associate is teamed with a partner mentor during the early years of practice. A formal evaluation of an associate’s performance is conducted twice a year. Our goal during an attorney’s period of association with the firm is to do all we can to help him or her achieve partnership.
Our associates enjoy a full range of paid benefits including medical insurance, 401(k) and profit sharing, State Bar of Georgia dues, expenses of attending State Bar meetings, Macon Bar Association dues, CLE expenses, life insurance, disability insurance, and annual City of Macon professional tax.
