Life Isn't All Work
Our summer program focuses on providing you with opportunities to do real work for real clients. Another important aspect of the summer program is making lasting connections with our lawyers and staff. We do this through teambuilding and social activities that are unique to each of the cities in which we work and live.
Take me out to the ballgame! From Silicon Valley to Baltimore to New York, our summer associates enjoy one of America’s favorite past-times while cheering on their favorite baseball teams.
Our offices are located in some of the largest metro areas all around the world, but summer is the time to get outdoors! River rafting is one example of the many activities that our summer associates in several offices do to enjoy life outside the city.
Summer associates, lawyers and staff from our San Diego office participate in the World Famous® Camp Pendleton Mud Run. This race is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) of mud and obstacles encountered at Camp Pendleton in northern San Diego County. The #1 rule of the race – have fun!
Engrained in our culture is the importance of giving back to our communities. One of the many ways we do that is through community service projects during the summer. For example, our Washington DC office has helped Habitat For Humanity build a house every summer for over nine years.
In our Atlanta office, our summer associates participate annually in a series of golf clinics designed to teach them the game from the ground up. In many of our other offices, the summer associates participate in low stress, fun-filled golf outings at beautiful local courses.
After years of eating macaroni and cheese as students, our summer associates love the chance to participate in cooking classes across the country. They have a terrific time working as a team to create new dishes.
Museum Tour/Cocktail Party
Many of the cities in which we work boast world-class museums and throughout the season, our summer associates enjoy visiting them. Some museums that we have visited include the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore and the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle.
