Rogers & Hardin’s Caseworker Program is designed to offer recent college graduates an opportunity to work in a legal environment, directly assisting attorneys and paralegals with case management. Applicants must have the long-range goal of attending law school and an outstanding collegiate record in order to be considered for a position in our caseworker program.
"At Rogers & Hardin caseworkers are allowed to participate in hands-on legal work and exposed to a variety of complex and interesting cases. For those interested in practicing law it is a tremendous place to begin a career because it provides a network of professional contacts and fosters lifelong friendships within one of the most prestigious law firms in the region."

We do not look for any specific degree in the hiring process, but rather a well-rounded, balanced educational background with applicants showing meaningful summer internships in areas that will inform and develop them intellectually and personally.
The program is designed for those who can commit to work for a minimum of one year before leaving Rogers & Hardin to attend law school (the length of commitment may vary slightly depending on the time of year). We ask for that commitment at the interview, but caseworkers are considered for longer periods of time on a case-by-case basis.
“The Caseworker program at Rogers & Hardin provided me with more than just insight into how legal professionals operate on a daily basis. It also gave me the opportunity to actively participate and work through a wide variety of matters: from participating in mock trials and managing and running our technology at a trial, to flying to North Carolina to support our trial team, and even directly communicating with and handling work for a client.
Teamwork is a very important part of working at Rogers & Hardin. Regardless of title or position, whether partner, associate, secretary, or document management staff, everyone’s contributions are valued and treated with respect. This taught me the importance of collaboration, communication and organization and gave me the opportunity to learn from a variety of different people.
Any internship can help prepare you for a future career, but I feel that working at Rogers & Hardin has helped me to begin my legal career already."
