Our summer associate program aims to provide law students with experiences over a range of practice areas. From litigation to corporate to business restructuring, you will have the opportunity to attend client meetings, court hearings and depositions, gaining real-world experience at one of Florida’s top commercial law firms.

Each of our summer associates is matched with a mentor who will guide his or her “mentee” through the program and provide feedback. Throughout the summer, you will also participate in community outreach, networking events, and firm-hosted social events. 

We look to fill the summer class with well-rounded self-starters who are smart, considerate, self-confident, industrious, and happy.
