Work Assignments

We do not use a formal rotation system. Work requests and observation opportunities are submitted to the program coordinators and distributed during the weekly summer associate meeting. 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
  • "Real Life" as an associate
  • Work product expectations
  • Practice areas
