Careers – 1L Summer Associate – 2021


Pacifica Law Group is a unique Seattle law firm serving both public and private clients throughout the Pacific Northwest with high-level expertise, intellect, and a commitment to Northwest companies and civic entities. Pacifica attorneys practice in appellate, constitutional, and governmental litigation; school law; real estate; construction; public finance; and public-private partnerships. We are seeking a motivated 1L to join us for a summer to learn about all of our practice areas and work in a dynamic, expanding, and team-oriented atmosphere.


We seek applicants who are committed to working in the Pacific Northwest after graduation and who are interested in promoting and contributing to our firm’s core values: mutual respect; openness; civility; community engagement and volunteerism; diversity in our firm, the legal profession, and our community at large; and balance in our work and lives. Priority will be placed on identifying applicants who will meaningfully add to the diversity—and thus the effectiveness and fairness—of our firm’s culture and the broader legal community. All applicants are invited to include in their cover letter an explanation of how they will contribute to the firm’s core values, in particular, the diversity and inclusiveness of our firm and ultimately the profession. People from historically marginalized backgrounds or underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

This position will be paid at a competitive salary. The duration is flexible, not to exceed ten weeks, and should conclude before the OCI process for your school begins. Because we are a relatively smaller firm, we are unable to commit to an eventual or expected job offer upon graduation. For more information about us, please visit

To Apply:

Applicants should submit a resume and a cover letter stating their qualifications for this position, why they are interested in working at Pacifica in particular, and what they hope to accomplish with a career in the law. Priority will be given to applications received by January 10, 2021, with a selection process to follow.
