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.
