Summer Associate Program
Our Summer Associate Program is a critical source of new lawyers for our Firm. Many of our associates—and several of our partners—were participants in our Summer Associate Program. For that reason, we maintain high standards in the selection process, and we endeavor to give each Summer Associate a realistic impression of the people and practice of our Firm.
Our program begins in May and lasts at least ten weeks, and typically includes only second-year law students.
A summer with our Firm provides experiences as a new lawyer. Summer Associates are not only involved in legal research, writing and analysis that are significant to our clients and their cases, but they also attend depositions, hearings, trials, and client meetings. We endeavor to provide immediate and constructive feedback to Summer Associates on all assignments.
Our Summer Associate Program also includes social activities, including an Indianapolis Indians outing, a golf outing open to all Firm attorneys, and informal, after-work gatherings. Such activities are designed to help acquaint Summer Associates with the Firm and its attorneys, but do not dominate a Summer Associate’s non-work time.
We typically conduct on-campus interviews for our Summer Associate Program in September of each year. If you are interested in our Summer Associate Program, please send a cover letter and resume to the Recruiting Partner, Robert C. Brandt, at email@example.com, or submit your resume, cover letter and law school transcript to your law school’s career development office (for on-campus interviews). All information received will be held in confidence.
Summer Associate FAQs
Q: How would you describe the Firm’s culture?
A: The Firm’s culture can best be described as a team. Rather than a loose association of attorneys, the partnership operates more as a single unit to obtain the best results for our clients.
Q: What kind of work will I be exposed to as a Summer Associate?
A: Summer Associates are exposed to the variety of the Firm’s practice by becoming involved in real projects for real clients. Summer Associates will conduct legal research on a variety of topics; attend depositions, hearings, trials, and client meetings; draft pleadings and contracts; and observe attorneys in their daily practices. Assignments will come directly from the attorneys whose clients have the issues presented, rather than from a single source.
Q: Will I have the opportunity to seek out work of particular interest to me?
A: Our Firm is not divided into specific departments, so Summer Associates will not be assigned to a “department”. Instead, Summer Associates will work with partners and associates in all areas of the Firm’s practice. Summer Associates are encouraged to make their interests known. Projects in those areas of interest will then be assigned to them as the work is available.
Q: What is the structure of the Summer Associate Program?
A: Summer Associates are under the general direction of the Recruiting Partner who will meet with them at least monthly to discuss their work and ensure that they are getting a well-rounded experience. Each Summer Associate is also assigned a Senior Associate to be his or her mentor and monthly mentor meetings will be held. Such meetings are designed to promote two-way communication and feedback, but the majority of feedback provided to the Summer Associates is the daily feedback they can expect on the projects they are assigned.
