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.
Summer associates sit in on depositions, go to arbitrations and meet with clients. They have the ability to sample all of the practice areas within the firm and learn what area of law they want to pursue as a career.
Above all, Boutin summer associates get personal attention and form authentic professional relationships that are difficult to find at most firms:
The first thing I noticed as a Boutin summer associate was how proud all of the attorneys were to work at this law firm. The Boutin shareholder and counsel who I worked with had both been summer associates and were still at the firm. That spoke volumes to me about how the firm treats associates. – Elizabeth Key, former summer associate, current associate attorney at Boutin Jones
