Survey Says


Training & Assignments and Social Opportunities

  • “Work assignments and workflow were well regulated through an internal request system, but I had a lot of say in what kind of work I wanted to do and with whom.”
  • “I worked with many associates and partners at the firm on various types of projects. They always took my feedback on what areas I would like to have an assignment in and did a good job of giving me a project in that area. I was often given projects that second- or third-year associates worked on, which gave me confidence that I was seeing what a full-time career there would be like.”
  • “Attorneys really took the time to explain the context of the work I was doing. This was helpful because the summer isn't enough time to see the whole deal process.”
  • “The social aspect of the firm's summer associate program [was] great. The firm had the right [number] of social events, giving us a lot to do without making it overwhelming or all-consuming. Camaraderie among summer associates was high and continues to be high during our time as first year associates.”

Favorite Summer Events

  • “[Saw] the play Hamilton!”
  • “The boat cruise with other associates of the firm.”
