Summer associate program

For law students, a summer at Sedgwick means a season of practical experience because our summer associates are given real work on active cases - the same type of assignments first-year attorneys receive. Summer associates assist in the development of case strategy, review and write memos and briefs, and help prepare for and attend depositions and court appearances, while working with partners and associates as possible. Each assigning attorney provides feedback directly to the summer associate following the completion of each project. We also provide a formal review in the middle of the summer and at the end of the program.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
