ProfileSummer Associate Program Summer program lasts 10 weeks, beginning at the end of May and ending in early August. The program commences with orientation, which includes an office tour, overviews of the practices, training and information on mentors and gatekeepers. A typical summer is 6 to 12 weeks. Each summer associate is assigned an associate mentor as well as a partner mentor. Summer associate rotates among two or three practice groups, depending on expressed interest, in order to gain as much experience in office as possible. Rotations also allow for more interaction with attorneys in different practice groups. Summer associates do real work for real clients, working closely with attorneys in all aspects of case management. Areas of interest include: Intellectual property/intellectual property litigation; Corporate; Litigation; Real estate; Healthcare (regulatory, transactions, real estate, litigation); and Labor and Employment. Summer associates work on projects assigned by various lawyers in the office through summer associate work assignment coordinators. After a project is assigned, summer associates communicate directly with the assigning lawyer. Summer associates are expected to work and act like lawyers in the office. Split summers are determined on a case-by-case basis. 2L students will be considered. Judicial clerkships following graduation are encouraged.
