MIAMI – Weil’s Summer Program is a truly exceptional experience. Miami summers spend 10 weeks working directly with partners, counsel and associates in the Firm’s market-leading Litigation, Real Estate, Restructuring, or Tax practices at Weil’s centrally-located Brickell office. 

How the application process works:
Applications for Weil’s summer program open on March 11. Students are invited to interview – through direct application or following “OCI” – and typically speak with four Weil attorneys, either in-person or via Zoom. Our Hiring Committee makes offer decisions as efficiently and thoughtfully as possible and applicants typically hear back promptly.

Miami program trajectory:
On the first day of the program, you will head up to Weil’s 12th floor office to begin learning about the Firm and what to expect over the next 10 weeks. Summers receive training on computer skills, library access, and research tools like Lexis and Westlaw, ensuring you have the support you need to succeed here at Weil.

The team will set you up in an office and pair you with an associate mentor, forming a network of people to support you and ensuring you quickly become part of the Weil Family.  

Weil has no shortage of exceptional matters for you to work on. Miami summers are fully immersed in their respective team and have opportunities to listen in on client calls, attend depositions and/or assist in exciting pro bono matters.

A typical day in the life:
After settling into the program, you will hit the cadence of what it means to be a Weil summer associate.

Your morning may start with an email from a partner alerting you of an assignment. You stop by their office to hear about the matter, and ask some questions. While working on the project, you reach out to an associate on the deal for clarification and further background documents or precedent. At Weil, our team members understand the learning curve of the summer program and are always willing to help. In fact, our attorneys love the chance to teach and get to know the summer associate class every year.

After finishing the project, you head out to lunch with Weil partners and associates in one of the many nearby waterfront restaurants. On your return, you run into a third-year associate, with whom you previously worked. They suggest grabbing coffee to hear about your summer and talk about their own experience at Weil, a great informal mentoring opportunity.

“I appreciate how generous Weil associates are with their offers to meet up… I don’t like buzzwords, but warm and collegial are two words that really do describe the relationships people have with one another here, and it instantly rubs off on you.” – A former Weil summer associate

Once the work day concludes, you gear up for an event that evening: a team dinner, department activity or concert with other summers; hallmarks of the summer experience and a great way to bond with your class and Weil attorneys alike!

“The events, both substantive and social, have exceeded the expectations set forth by my legal network.” – A former Weil summer associate

Why Weil:
Weil’s summer program strikes a unique balance of substantive work experience and exciting social networking opportunities. Our summers have an excellent time, but they also work hard and are treated like full members of the team.  With this approach, summers get a clear picture of what it means to be a Weil lawyer.

If you want to be challenged with market-leading work, make meaningful individual contributions and launch your career, Weil’s Miami summer program is the place for you.
