Our Survey Says

  • “I had an assigned work coordinator who listened to what practice areas I wanted to explore, and was fantastic at finding me interesting assignments without overwhelming me.”
  • “There are formal training programs, and summer associates do real, substantive work (as long as it is available). The firm doesn't make up fake projects for summer associates.”
  • “I received several work assignments throughout the summer, and had an opportunity to work with various attorneys. All attorneys were happy to discuss the assignments and answer questions.”
  • “I had a great time trying out substantive work across a wide range of practice groups, and with a wide range of attorneys. And by encouraging me to try out such a wide range of work, I felt like the summer program really helped me discover the type of work I enjoyed, and find the people I wanted to work with.”
  • “There were not that many events my year (it was the second COVID summer). There were [a] few virtual events, like a wine tasting where they mailed us wine bottles, but there were maybe three of these events for the summer. The summer class itself was very cool; we got together a lot, and got drinks.”
  • “It was 2020, so the firm did what it could with virtual events, but COVID made it difficult to socialize. I still virtually met a lot of firm attorneys.”
  • “Unfortunately, my summer associate experience was during the pandemic. Therefore, we didn't really have the opportunity to have meaningful social interactions in person. The firm did their best to incorporate activities virtually, but virtual activities cannot replace that of in-person experience.”
  • “Despite my summer program being remote due to COVID, the social events were very fun and engaging!”
  • “When I was a summer associate, I was with a firm that merged with the current firm. I would say, in both cases, the ability to select and work on whatever you want is definitely there, especially for associates that prove that they are hard workers. This is true both within and outside of practice groups—I've been able to work on a variety of work outside my given practice group.”
  • “Working at the firm as an associate is even more enjoyable than the summer! I really enjoy my practice groups, and have ample opportunities to do meaningful work on a daily basis, with great mentors and colleagues.”
  • “Lots more hours.”
  • “My favorite summer event was the in-person rooftop party at the end of the summer.”
  • “The lawyers' softball league, where we would play our softball games on the National Mall.”
  • “We had a trivia night that was fun.”

The Firm Says

Crowell’s summer associate program is an introduction to what it’s really like to be a lawyer here. The work, training, and social events provide a great idea of who we are, what we do, and how we do it. Our program provides opportunities for growth and development, and for summer associates to demonstrate how their talents and perspective will enrich our community. Work is assigned by staffing coordinators based on practice interests of the summer associate. Each summer associate is also asked to work on at least one pro bono project. Crowell summer associates participate in a robust training program where they are introduced to firm leaders and practice groups, learn about different career paths of firm lawyers, and participate in interactive skill building programs. We have fun too! Activities are designed to introduce summer associates to lawyers and professional staff, build a class community, and get to know the city.
