Summer associates may choose work assignments from any practice area they are interested in, either from the firm's work-assignment database or directly from attorneys. For example, summer associates may be asked to draft board-meeting minutes, articles of incorporation, venture financing documents, closing documents for transactions, and answers to complaints. In addition, summer associates may attend board meetings, depositions, judicial proceedings, IPO drafting sessions, and client meetings. As the program progresses, summer associates are encouraged to contact practice groups directly to seek work projects and develop relationships with attorneys.
Attorneys will provide guidance during the assignment and feedback at the end of every project. Every summer associate receives a formal mid-summer review and end-of-summer review.
