We only hire summer associates whom we expect will become full time associates. That makes our summer associate “offer rate” about as high as it gets. You won’t find extravagant summer associate entertainment or a high-profile summer program. Here is what we offer: attorneys who will take the time to get to know you and help you; ample opportunity to do high-caliber work; a diverse offering of practice area exposure; a stable work environment with a high probability of future employment; complimentary attendance at activities in the legal community; salary commensurate with local firms; and a lot of people who want to help you succeed.
Examples of work assignments from an actual summer associate
I worked one-on-one with clients at their business to restructure operating procedures, I gave case updates to clients, sat in on depositions, wrote briefs, updated articles and bylaws for a local legal organization, sat in on mediations, and made court appearances with shareholders.
This is a summer associate program that treats you like a firm attorney. You become part of the firm for the entire summer. – Amy O’Neill, former summer associate, current associate attorney at Boutin Jones
