Summer Associates will have the opportunity to regularly attend client meetings, trials, depositions, municipal meetings and adjudicatory proceedings, in addition to performing legal drafting, research and writing.

Encouraging a tight-knit culture of support and camaraderie is important to the Firm and so the Summer Associate Program also offers a wide range of networking opportunities.
