Program Overview

The summer associate program typically starts the Tuesday following Memorial Day. We ask that our summer associates commit to spending a minimum of nine weeks with the firm. Throughout the duration of the summer, you will gain valuable hands-on work experience and build meaningful connections with the attorneys at our firm.

Fostering your long-term growth and development is one of our top priorities, and our retention rate is highly indicative of this. In the last 6 years, most of our summer associates have accepted a position at Clyde & Co following the completion of the summer program.
