2017 2L SUMMER ASSOCIATE POSITION

Briggs and Morgan is seeking 2L applicants for its 2017 summer associate class. Law students who will have completed their second year of law school before the summer of 2017 are
eligible to apply.

THE SUMMER ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
Our ten-week summer associate program generally starts at the end of May and concludes the first week of August. During the program, a summer associate is exposed to both the commercial and litigation departments of the firm, receiving assignments that range from conducting legal research and drafting legal memoranda to preparing commercial documents and pleadings used in litigation. Summer associates also have the opportunity to attend depositions, court appearances, appellate arguments, client meetings, drafting sessions, conference calls and transactional closings. In addition, summer associates participate in firm meetings and in-house training sessions. Each summer associate is given feedback on every project completed during the summer. In addition, three individual evaluations are conducted by recruiting committee and evaluation committee members throughout the summer to discuss each summer
associate’s progress.
