Survey Says


Training & Assignments

  • “Although it is hard to find projects that are assignable for the short summer timeframe, the firm did a good job of giving us substantive work, and none of the assignments were ‘make work.’ Due to the short length of the program, many of the assignments tended to be research-oriented.”
  • “The assignments were as substantive as possible, and the attorneys I worked with were enthusiastic about getting me involved in the deal as a whole (listening in on conference calls, meeting with clients, providing me with all documents besides the ones I was working on to get background). The attorneys were also very enthusiastic about training and mentoring.”
  • “I got to draft meaningful memos that broke down a newly passed comprehensive paid family leave law [and] a client advisory on how to best use expert consultants and maintain privilege over those communications.”

Social Opportunities

  • “My class became very close and remains [close] to this day. The firm encourages us to have personal relationships amongst each other as people and not just as co-workers. Everyone at the firm views relationships the same way so that they are not merely distant professional ones but ones that are there for your personal development too. There were not too many social events either, like at other firms. They were mainly from Monday through Thursday and were an appropriate amount of time so we were not overwhelmed all summer or would not have time for our own personal social lives.”
  • “The social events were a balance between smaller events where a handful of attorneys would join us for a Red Sox game or a concert, and firmwide parties on the back deck or at local venues.”
  • “Given that it is a smaller summer class, the groups are always very close and become great friends by the end of the program. The whole summer is filled with schedules outings, cocktail parties, attorney socials and more.”

Associate Experience vs. Summer Expectations

  • “Everything promised by the firm has been consistent to date.”
  • “It was a genuine look into associate life from a work perspective. I knew that there would not be as many social events once I began officially working officially and I was fine with that.”
  • “While obviously there are less social events, all that time over the summer is replaced by work now, which is what I was expecting. I was told if there was room for me in the private client and trust group, I would be offered the spot, and, in fact, I was during the summer immediately before starting.”

Favorite Summer Events

  • “Chainsmokers concert at the Garden [venue in Boston].”
  • “I loved painting the porch for a halfway shelter operated by one of our pro bono clients. …
  • “A kickball tournament!”
