Our summer program is designed to expose summer associates to a realistic view of what it is like to practice law at GrayRobinson. The program provides ongoing interaction with attorneys on substantive assignments and during varied social events.
Summer associates are paired with a mentoring associate attorney who assists in the transition from law school to life as a practicing attorney. To the extent possible, each summer associate is offered an opportunity to work on projects in multiple practice areas. If a summer associate has an interest in a specific practice area, every effort is made to assign projects to that person from that practice area.
An attorney member of the Recruiting Committee in each office keeps a record of projects the summer associates are working on to ensure that the workload is spread among all summer associates and to expose summer associates to a variety of projects. Written feedback is provided to summer associates on an assignment-by-assignment basis, as well as during a more formal end-of-summer evaluation. A comprehensive evaluation of each participant in the program, as well as a projection of future hiring needs, allows the GrayRobinson Recruiting Committee to extend offers to those summer associates who we believe will fit in and flourish at our firm.
