Hire a Student on a Short-Term Basis

Do you need assistance on a short-term basis? Find out about Pitt Law STEP.

Hiring trends nationally and in Pittsburgh reflect that increasing  percentages of recent law school graduates are being hired by solo and small firm practitioners.  

In order for Pitt Law to better serve those firms and solo practitioners that have a need for qualified law student interns on a project or time-limited basis, Pitt Law has established the Short Term Employment Program, or Pitt Law STEP.  Our goal is to: 

  • Assist solo and small firm practitioners when they have a temporary need for assistance.
  • Provide second and third year Pitt Law students with paid, experiential learning opportunities.
  • Offer additional opportunities for interaction between Pitt Law students and members of the Allegheny County and Pennsylvania Bar Associations.

How the Pitt Law STEP works:  

  • Employers pay the students directly on an hourly basis.
  • Project may last days, weeks, or longer.
  • Job opportunities are posted on the PittLawWorks database.
  • Employers receive the students’ application materials and select a law student.
  • Students wishing to participate in the program participate in mandatory Professional Development programs addressing the demands and expectations of practice, confidentiality, timesheet preparation, etc.
