The Adams and Reese Summer Associate Program offers second-year law students the chance to work in a fast paced legal environment, while challenging law students with real world experiences that include claim investigation, legal analysis and writing, courtroom and deposition observation and special training seminars. Summer Associates are fully integrated into Adams and Reese working along side attorneys writing briefs, attending closings, preparing for trials and attending strategy sessions.
Each fall, Adams and Reese hires a select group of second year law students to participate in the Summer Associate Program. Summer Associates are offered a six-week session to share in our culture. We regard a six-week program as an ideal time frame for us to assess your professional potential and for summer associates to make a well-informed career decision about us.
We generally offer summer associate programs in all of our offices except the Nashville Music Row and Washington, DC offices. The program size varies from office to office and year to year based on anticipated hiring needs. We do not offer a 1L program nor do we consider first year law students for our Summer Associate Program.
We view our Summer Associate Program as our primary source for recruiting our new associates. We invite law students with excellent academic records and well-rounded backgrounds to take a look at how we run our organization. We are looking for people who are motivated and personable and whose educational and professional accomplishments forecast future achievements.
Adams and Reese is a proud member of NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals, and we welcome you to research us.
NALP's recent "Open Letter to Law Students" provides valuable guidelines to make the interviewing process run as smoothly as possible.
