Each year, we seek to recruit a diverse 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 summer associates enjoy the freedom to choose the work that interests them most. They are mentored by 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 opportunities to represent, on a one-on-one basis, pro bono clients of various organizations, including The Legal Aid Society of New York, who lack the legal counsel indispensable to secure benefits that profoundly impact their lives.
As a summer associate at Cahill, you will join a friendly, supportive team of lawyers with a long-standing reputation for excellence. You will join an established firm with an outstanding client base, business-savvy leadership, and a thoughtful approach to your career trajectory.
