Law Student Opportunities

Summer Associate Program

A high grade point average is great, but qualities like passion, curiosity, approachability and willingness to be coached are additional traits that we’ve found increase odds of a successful and gratifying legal practice.

Our summer associate program gives you the chance to use what you’ve learned but pushes and stretches you – all the while you’re getting real law practice experience.

Don’t worry about being stuck in the library or a file room for the summer. For several weeks, you’ll be guided by a mentor and advisor and treated as a professional. You’ll work with experienced attorneys on challenging matters. Every three to four weeks, you’ll be assigned to a different practice group to expand your perspective and provide a broader experience. If you have a specific area of interest, we’ll give you plenty of time to explore it.

You’ll enjoy a full slate of planned activities that allow you to get to know our attorneys and the other summer associates in casual settings. Special seminars to teach soft skills, the business of law firms and trends in the legal profession are part of the summer curriculum.

Apply for the 2019 summer associate program.
