For the second year in a row, the summer associate program of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C. was ranked as one of the top ten firm wide programs in the country. Law students participating in the 2008 summer associate survey once again recognized the firm's commitment to providing an excellent and meaningful program. The firm was ranked 9th overall out of 165 firms in the annual American Lawyer Summer Associates Survey. It was also recognized for having one of the top programs for training and guidance. The survey is administered to second-year law students upon completing the 10-week program. The entire list will be featured in the November 2008 American Lawyer.
"We are certainly delighted that Mintz Levin's summer associate program is once again included among the top programs in the country, and we are gratified that our focus on the individual's professional goals and development resonates with students," said Thomas R. Burton, Co-Chair of the firm's Boston Hiring Committee. "We are committed to providing our summer associates a diverse and substantive work experience that we believe will ultimately help them to decide on the area of law they want to practice."
