Our Summer Associate Program closely mirrors the experience of being a first-year associate at Clyde & Co. Throughout the summer, you’ll have the opportunity to work on meaningful work assignments, participate in training and development programs, and observe the law in practice.
As a summer associate, you will work with our attorneys on a variety of substantive projects that involve skills such as legal research, analysis, and drafting for ongoing client matters.
To help you develop the requisite skills needed to become a successful Clyde & Co attorney, we offer training seminars that cover the essentials: Time Entry and Billing, Legal Research and Writing, How to Read an Insurance Policy, Negotiations, Deposition Techniques and more. We also identify opportunities for you to sit in on depositions, attend court hearings, and even client meetings.
In addition to developing your legal skills, we seek to expand your knowledge of the firm’s practice areas through our “Partners in Practice” program. We host a multitude of sessions in which our Partners and team members provide an overview of their practice and cases. These sessions not only allow each summer associate to gain exposure to location specific practice areas, but they are also a great way to build connections with our lawyers.
