Summer Program Overview


During the summer, we expose our summer associates to realistic, substantive legal assignments tackling issues across intellectual property disciplines, including litigation, prosecution, and transactional. Our summer program is currently remote, with the hopes of bringing our summer associates into the office for a short time at the end of the summer (based on current guidelines and vaccination availability). Even while virtual, we have many social events throughout the summer that help build firm-wide camaraderie.
