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.
An actual summer associate gives examples of work assignments and talks about what makes the Boutin summer program unique:
Summer associates sit in on depos, go to arbitrations and meet with clients. I was grateful to sample all of the practice areas within the firm, as it helped me to figure out what I wanted to invest my career in.
Attorneys at Boutin seek out summer associates to collaborate on projects. One very pleasant surprise was just how supportive the attorneys were to me as a summer associate. They really invested the time in helping me to become a good attorney. That’s very hard to put a price on. As a summer associate, and now as an associate, it’s invaluable. – Kate Wittlake, former summer associate, current associate attorney at Boutin Jones
