Each year, we seek to recruit a summer class comprised of thoughtful, enthusiastic second-year law students from law schools across the United States, with strong communication and interpersonal skills. Our summer program is designed to provide a realistic and rewarding experience reflecting life as a first year associate at the firm.
Our full-time associates and our summer associates enjoy the freedom to choose the work that interests them most. They are mentored by full time partners and associates and are given opportunities to participate in a wide range of meaningful assignments and activities such as client meetings, negotiations, court hearings, travel, research, and drafting briefs, pleadings and memos.
We encourage our summer associates to capitalize on the various opportunities to represent, on a one-on-one basis, pro bono clients of The Legal Aid Society of New York, who lack the legal counsel indispensable to secure benefits that profoundly impact their lives.
