Summer Associates

Each fall, we look to select a small group of highly qualified students for our summer associate program. Our objective is to give our summer associates an experience as close as we can to that of a new associate. We make every effort to expose summer associates to all facets of our practice and involve them actively in negotiations, client meetings, courtroom and deposition sessions and travel. Since a primary objective of the program is to give the summer associate a chance to get to know us, summer associates rotate over the course of the summer through several of our practice areas. Our summer associates are free to choose those practice areas that interest them most.
