Summer Associate Program
Our summer associate program is more than a summer job. It’s a path to creating long-lasting relationships and building a strong foundation for a successful legal career. It’s an opportunity to apply everything you’ve learned in law school and gain hands-on experience.
Whether you know exactly what area of law you want to practice or are still exploring, our program is designed with flexibility so you get a variety of experiences. To help you discover the legal path that’s right for you, projects are assigned on a weekly rotating schedule from attorneys of all levels, practice areas and professional backgrounds. You’ll also receive coaching and feedback, from informal day-to-day interactions to formal evaluations.
A full schedule of activities enables you to get to know our attorneys and the other summer associates in casual social settings where your only assignment is to have fun and be yourself. The summer curriculum also includes special seminars to teach soft skills, the business of law firms and trends in the legal profession.
Every step of the way, you’ll be immersed in our firm’s culture, from the way we work to the way we celebrate our successes and yours. By the end of the summer, you’ll know what it’s like to be an AT attorney.
Applications for the 2021 summer associate class will open on Oct. 1, 2020, for 2Ls and Dec. 1, 2020 for 1Ls.
