Summer Associate Program

Our Summer Associate Program provides students with the opportunity to do substantive work in a variety of practice areas. Summer Associates can rotate among practice teams with a hiring need for which they have the required technical skills.

Summer Associates also participate in three progress evaluations to review attorney feedback on all work products.

The Summer Program Committee members in each office serve as mentors for the program, providing guidance for evaluations, assigning work, coaching Associates as they rotate teams and ensuring a positive work/life balance.
