Summer Associate Program

Program Dates:

Work Assignments

We do not use a formal rotation system. Work requests and observation opportunities are submitted by the attorneys and you will have the chance to select the requests that fit in with your workload and time constraints. We also require two writing samples throughout the summer (mid/end).


Our firm places a high value on an individual's ability to receive and utilize constructive criticism effectively. Summer associates will be provided written evaluations by the assigning attorney for each completed assignment. In addition, mid and end summer in-person reviews are conducted.


Associate volunteers act as mentors to the summer associates. They provide guidance about a variety of issues including:

  • Office operations
  • Firm culture
