Liskow & Lewis’ summer associate program serves as the primary source for hiring entry-level attorneys. The 2012 program is designed to allow second-year law students the opportunity to learn first-hand about the practice of law and, more importantly, about our unique culture and dynamic law practice.
Summer associates are not typically assigned to a specific section of the firm. Rather, we encourage law students to work with several different practice groups over the course of their clerkship. This flexibility not only promotes a better understanding of the firm and our attorneys, it also provides an opportunity for a summer associate to develop or hone a particular interest or work preference during his or her clerkship. Each summer associate also is assigned an attorney mentor who acts as a guide through the clerkship experience and as an additional resource to assist the summer associate in making an informed career decision.
Although legal research and writing are the primary work activities of a summer associate, we also encourage clerks to attend out-of-office activities, such as depositions, trials, hearings, inspections and closings. In addition to day-to-day workprojects, the firm also hosts a variety of fun social functions to allow law students and attorneys to get to know each another in a less formal setting.
