Our Summer Associate Program gives second-year law students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in different areas of the law while working under the guidance of some of the top attorneys in their fields.

The focus of the program is to provide meaningful work opportunities, out-of-office legal experiences, and opportunities to network and socialize while fostering growth and development. The success of our program is shown by the considerable number of our Summer Associates who return as Associates after graduating from law school. Learn more about our Summer Associate Program here.
