Summer Associate Program, 2020
The firm offers a select group of 2L law students the opportunity to experience and participate in ongoing client matters across multiple practices. Should have completed two years of coursework. Summer associates gain valuable, real-world experience in a diverse, business-focused law firm. Summer associates work on assignments from a number of practices, and are able to narrow their practice interests as the summer progresses. Participants hone practical writing and analytical skills through a formal feedback and evaluation process. Each summer associate is assigned a shareholder and an associate who act as the mentor and advisor. Where appropriate, summer associates attend trials, hearings, client meetings, closings, and phone conferences.

Review:

"This Firm Is Great"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

This firm needs to be more consistent with their hours. Spread clients out more so the work doesn't build up and employees don't feel overwhelmed.

Pros : I've had a lot of great experiences working for this firm. I made a lot of good friends and become very close with some of my clients. Management was also very accommodating and always made sure the staff was taken care of.
Cons : The hours for this firm were not great. Some weeks we had a lot of work; other weeks we hardly had any. Some weeks became very stressful and I wasn't sure about if I was going to have a job.
