As a summer associate, you will receive challenging responsibilities and opportunities. You work alongside our partners and associates, contribute to trials, participate in the structuring and negotiating of business transactions, and take part in client conferences. You will be able to attend a writing workshop and other professional development training throughout the summer. We provide our summer associates a stimulating, real world experience to prepare them to take on the responsibilities of a practicing lawyer.
Each office has at least one Summer Program Coordinator who is responsible for managing the work projects of our summer associates and providing informal feedback and guidance throughout the summer. Summer associates are also formally reviewed several times over the course of the summer and receive constructive feedback about their work product directly from the lawyers with whom they work.
Each summer associate is paired with a mentor who provides guidance, advice, and training throughout the summer. This mentoring relationship helps you take full advantage of your summer experience and helps prepare you for your legal career.
The Social Side
Summer associates are not required to work around the clock! You will have the opportunity to attend gatherings specific to industry and practice groups as well as small group lunches with our attorneys. Several social activities are planned throughout the summer, including a firmwide event in which all of our summer associates gather in one city to get to know one another, learn more about our firm and have some fun.
We invite you to further explore our Summer Associate Program by submitting your resume and cover letter through our online application process, or registering for an on-campus or job fair interview.
