Our Survey Says

  • “The firm's summer program rotates the summer associates through every major department at the firm, so that the associate can meet and work with a broad spectrum of attorneys and handle a broad set of matters. ...”
  • “It was as good as they could make it. I summered during the height of the pandemic, so everything was remote. It's hard to prepare you for ‘regular’ work in that type of environment, but I was grateful that they still put it on (as many other firms didn't).”
  • “As a summer associate, I rotated through all practice groups. This is different from how I practice now, because I now split my time between two different departments. The training over the summer was very good, but was mostly focused on learning firm processes and procedures (billing time, using document management software, etc.) since there wasn't a specific practice area.”
  • “Opportunity to rotate among different departments.”
  • “A night at the Magic Castle.”
  • “Cooking class.”
  • “Going to the Hollywood Bowl, and a party at a partner's house in Malibu!”

The Firm Says

The main objective of our summer program is to provide our summer associates with an honest and real experience of what it is like to practice law as a junior attorney at Greenberg Glusker. For purposes of the summer program, we divide the firm into three practice area subgroups. Each summer associate spends a minimum of three weeks in each practice subgroup. Typically, the subgroups are organized as follows: (a) Litigation/Employment/Entertainment; (b) Real Estate/Environmental/Trusts & Estates; and (c) Bankruptcy/Business and Tax/Intellectual Property. Our summer associates work on real client matters and have the opportunity to attend trials, depositions, and business meetings. Also, as a part of the summer program, we plan social events to facilitate multiple opportunities for the summer associates to interact with as possible. Our summer social calendar includes a mix of formal events, such as concerts, sporting events, theater, and cooking classes, as well as informal happy hours and dinners.
