Before the summer begins, the firm leaders meet and discuss the summer associates and try to match each summer associate to a team based on his or her educational and work experience to date. As summer progresses, we encourage our summer associates to reach out to any attorney with whom they would like to work and see if there are any opportunities to work on projects with them.
Summer associates will work directly with senior attorneys who provide feedback and constructive criticism on their assignments. At the end of the summer, we hold in-person evaluation meetings with each summer associate.
Summer associates will generally work on billable matters but may also have the opportunity to work on pro bono matters on a case-by-case basis. Past summer associates have had the opportunity to work on pro bono matters such as drafting a response to a trademark office action and researching copyright royalty issues for a contract negotiation.
Our summer associates participate in a one-day orientation/training session their first week at the firm. There traditionally have also been various opportunities throughout the summer to join the trainings that may be offered for firm attorneys.
