"I get in about 9:15am-9:30pm and I am very rarely out the door later than 7:00pm. I have found that the firm is not that flexible about hours: you are expected to be in at least 9:30am - 5:30pm unless there are special circumstances."

"If you have work to do or a tight deadline you are expected to work as long as it takes to get it done in time. Saying that, there is no 'face-time' culture at Cooley and if you do not need to stay late you are encouraged to leave on time. I have only had a handful of late nights and have never stayed in the office past midnight."

"The working hours at the firm are very reasonable. I get in by 9:30am and rarely leave after 7:00pm, which seems to be commonplace. Although the firm is not that flexible on working hours, and I found that you would be expected to work at least from 9:30am-5:30pm, people very rarely work weekends."

"I found the hours to be relatively long, but there is no expectation to stay late to keep up appearances."
