The Summer Associate Program is 10-12 weeks in length and is designed to provide an encompassing look at what it means to be an attorney at Blethen Berens.
During the program, summer associates are given meaningful research and writing assignments, affording them the opportunity to work with many different lawyers in as many practice areas as possible. The program also incorporates many opportunities for summer associates to observe and participate in events such as trials, depositions, hearings, negotiations and closings. The firm also provides Summer Associates with a housing stipend.
While the summer associates gain a working knowledge of our law firm, our clients and our expectations for new attorneys, we get to know the summer associates, taking the opportunity to consider each for a position with our firm after they finish law school.
Our goal through this program is to find those individuals who have the potential for outstanding legal careers and that can deliver meaningful contributions to the firm, our clients and the community.
