Our Summer Associate Program is designed to be the first step of Associate development and the groundwork for a prosperous and rewarding career with our Firm.
We believe the best way to learn is through first-hand experience and exposure to real legal matters. Our Summer Associates often work directly with our clients and are regularly included in conference calls and out-of-office proceedings, such as court appearances and depositions. Summer Associates are also invited to attend all Firm training sessions, practice group meetings and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars. Throughout the summer, lawyers conduct workshops to help Summer Associates develop their skills, including legal writing presentations and practical tips for practicing law as a young associate. Our lawyers also provide meaningful feedback to Summer Associates on their work product. We encourage Summer Associates to choose a practice area of interest during their time with us and do not limit them to a formal rotation system.
Our Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Providence offices regularly participate in our summer program, and our New York and Hartford offices occasionally participate.
