Summer Associate Program
The Van Winkle Law Firm Summer Associate Program offers exceptional first and second year law students the opportunity to demonstrate and hone their legal skills while immersed in the authentic experience of working at our firm.
Summer Associates may participate in client conferences, depositions, motion hearings, mediation sessions, trials, and transactional closings. Summer Associates may also undertake assignments including trial preparation, drafting motions and pleadings, preparing written discovery, and crafting technical legal documents.
Supervising attorneys who have chosen to serve as mentors focus on the development of each Summer Associate’s legal research and writing skills. All of our partners and associates welcome Summer Associates to the practice of law and to our firm’s culture. Professional and social activities engage Summer Associates with the greater legal and civic community and acquaint clerks with our area’s remarkable surroundings.
