Our ten-week summer program is designed to provide law students with a complete and realistic view of our practice areas, as well as the culture of our firm. Summer associates work within the practice groups comprising the six departments of the firm—Defense Litigation, Business Transactions I and II, Business Litigation, Specialty Litigation & Insurance Coverage, and Lawyers for Professionals. This allows the summer associates to fully understand the breadth of the firm's expertise, the opportunities available at the firm and our expectations of new associates. Although the firm views the summer program as a working experience, it is our goal to make a summer position with the firm both intellectually and personally rewarding.
