How long is the summer program and when does it begin?

Our summer program typically is 9 weeks long, beginning in late May.

How does the assignment process work for the summer program?

Before the summer program begins, we ask each Summer Associate to indicate the departments and pro bono areas from which they would like to receive assignments and we distribute the work accordingly. Throughout the program, Summer Associates are provided many opportunities to take on assignments from departments not on their initial lists and a broad array of pro bono assignments. We also strive to ensure students work with a variety of attorneys. We do not assign Summer Associates to specific departments.

How does the evaluation process work?

After an assignment is completed, the assigning attorney is solicited to complete an evaluation form. The evaluation forms are compiled for the mid-summer and final reviews. We also strongly encourage each attorney to provide feedback directly to the Summer Associate after the assignment has been completed.

What types of training sessions will I attend as a Summer Associate?

We have a writing program that runs throughout the summer. We also host a mock trial, a venture capital training session, programs on the business of a law firm and legal ethics, and business lunch etiquette training. In addition, you’ll be invited to attend regularly scheduled Associate training sessions.

After on-campus interviews, when should I expect to hear from the firm about additional interviews?

We try to contact all candidates within 1-3 days following of the on-campus interview.

If I’m invited back for a call-back interview, what can I expect?

Typically you’ll be interviewed in several 30 minute one-on-one interviews with attorneys from a variety of practices areas. We work to tailor each interview schedule to match your interests and background.
