Assignments are made through the Summer Associate Committee, whose objective is to provide each summer associate with assignments that are diverse in subject matter, attorney relationships and work product. During our program, you can expect to receive varied, distinct and interesting assignments. We incorporate “attendance assignments” into our program, which offer you the opportunity to observe experienced attorneys trying cases, arguing motions, negotiating contracts or counseling clients. To ensure you a proper balance of assignments, a member of the Summer Associate Committee conducts weekly workload meetings with each summer associate. These meetings also provide you with an opportunity to make inquiries as well as provide feedback about your summer experience.

As a part of our program, training sessions are conducted in various practice areas, and, in some cases, summer associates are given an opportunity to demonstrate application of the principles they have been taught. Firm-sponsored social functions, as well as community outreach events, are arranged throughout the summer to allow us to get to know each other outside of the work environment.
