Summer Associate Program

Get a jump-start on your career.

As a Summer Associate at Husch Blackwell, you will receive a stimulating, real-world experience to help prepare for the responsibilities of life as a practicing lawyer. This means working alongside our partners and associates, contributing to trials and participating in the structuring and negotiation of business transactions, as well as client conferences. You will also be able to attend a writing workshop and other professional development training opportunities throughout the summer.

Open Communication

You will have the opportunity to work with at least one Summer Program Coordinator to manage your work projects and provide informal feedback and guidance throughout the summer. As a Summer Associate, you will also receive formal reviews twice over the course of the program and regular constructive feedback directly from the lawyers with whom you work.

Fostering Growth

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 prepares you for a successful legal career.

The Social Side

There is more to the Summer Associate Program than just work. You will have the opportunity to participate in specific industry and practice group events and small group lunches with our attorneys. Several social activities are planned throughout the summer, including a firm-wide event in which all of our Summer Associates gather in one city to meet, learn more about our firm and have fun.

You can find out more about 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.
