A summer associate or summer law clerk position provides an opportunity to create an employment relationship that leads to a post-graduate attorney position.  Whether you will be at a large law firm with a formal summer associate program or a small to midsized firm that hires summer law clerks, you should treat your summer like an 8 to 10-week long interview for an entry-level attorney position. Get insider advice on how to ensure that your work product meets expectations, as well as tips on how to develop a professional reputation and strong working relationships during the summer.
