Our summer associate program provides a hands-on experience and snapshot into life and work at McGlinchey.
Summer associates work closely with our attorneys, tackle challenging legal assignments, gain insight into the practice of law, and become a part of our firm.
From legal research to drafting memos, summer associates receive stimulating and substantive work assignments. They are guided throughout the program as they work closely with our attorneys.
Summer associates are assigned one partner mentor and one associate mentor who offer feedback, advice, and answers. Formal and informal mentoring easily occurs in our flexible but structured program. Planned lunches and gatherings after work are further opportunities for mentors and summer associates to interact, learn and develop.
Once a summer associate finishes a project, the assigning attorney reviews and evaluates his or her work. The feedback summer associates receive is an important resource for their success and becomes part of their review file upon completion of the program.
Because summer is an ideal season for socializing outside of the office, summer associates can expect ample opportunities to enjoy themselves and become better acquainted with the firm.
Bowling, happy hours, baseball games, lunches, and cocktail parties are among the many informal events that regularly occur during our summer associate program. Planned social activities help increase the exposure of summer associates across the firm.
Since 2008, McGlinchey Stafford has participated in the 1L LCLD Scholars Program. The program includes a Summer Associate position in one of our offices, a $5,000 scholarship, an opportunity to attend the 1L LCLD Scholars Summit, and valuable mentoring from our attorneys.
