Working as a summer associate is a unique opportunity to experience the day-to-day projects, challenges and excitement of a practicing attorney. Each summer, Larkin Hoffman hires a staff of law students who have completed their second year of law school. In the past, many have stayed on through the school year and some have continued as associates.
Our summer associate program is formatted to give students a glimpse into different areas of the law in which our firm specializes. Summer associates have the opportunity to accompany attorneys in both the courtroom and the board room. Summer associates also work together on a presentation to be given to all attorneys on a current legal issue.
Our summer associates are given the opportunity to work with a variety of attorneys in all of our different departments. Each summer associate is assigned a mentor, and is encouraged to approach their mentors with questions, concerns, and ideas throughout the summer. Work is assigned through a manager who monitors workloads and ensures that each student is given a broad range of opportunities. We understand the importance of feedback, and our attorneys take the time to evaluate the work done by summer associates in order to help them develop their skills.
Larkin Hoffman values diversity and provides a collegial and energetic work environment. We are dedicated to developing legal talent and work to make our summer associates feel a part of the firm.
