Summer Associate Program
Our Summer Associate Program provides a valuable opportunity for high-achieving law students. Each summer associate works on various projects in our seventeen practice areas. Summer associates gain experience in all aspects of our practice, including:
Drafting documents and pleadings
Attendance at depositions
Work assignments are interspersed with mentoring sessions, and feedback on performance. Summer associates can also look forward to a number of social events that provide an opportunity to get better acquainted with firm partners and associates.
The culmination of the Summer Associate Program is the final review process—the core of our hiring efforts. Each person is evaluated on:
Basis of knowledge of applicable law
Analytical and research skills
Quality of technical, reasoning and interpretive writing skills
Productivity and effectiveness
Communication and interpersonal skills
Depending on our hiring needs, offers are extended to summer associates who demonstrate qualities inherent in our partners: commitment to the legal profession, a passion for results, and the capacity to be a strategic problem-solver.
