Our Survey Says


  • “I was given substantive assignments from the beginning, and I was also able to become involved with meaningful pro bono work.”
  • “The firm integrated me into a case team, so I was able to see a small snapshot of the day-to-day life of an associate. I also drafted a patent validity analysis memo for a client.”
  • “I spent most of my summer working on a mid-market reverse merger but also did some one-off assignments for the venture capital and capital markets groups. The work was substantive—due diligence and precedent research mostly—and I also got the opportunity to shadow partners in client meetings. I think the virtual setting actually allowed for more opportunities to be a fly on the wall and learn. Although, this is not to say that we didn't also get substantive assignments.”


  • “We had social events every week, ranging from group cooking classes to escape rooms. Mintz hires relatively small summer classes, so we became very close and still have happy hours years later.”
  • “Virtual program but extremely well organized with creative social events sprinkled in. The class ended up much closer than I would have expected given the virtual summer.”
  • “The smaller summer associate class size makes camaraderie easy.”
  • “My favorite event was a group cooking class at an Italian restaurant in Boston's North End. Summer associates had the chance to speak with partners outside of their practice group and meet new people in a very fun and informal setting.”
  • “Virtual wine and chocolate tasting. They also sent us personal bottles of champagne that we all popped ‘together’ (virtually) when they extended full-time offers to everyone during the last week. This was a cool culmination at what was still a pretty stressful point in the pandemic.”
  • “Trivia and wine tasting were surprisingly fun considering they were both done remotely.”

The Firm Says

Our small class size coupled with our mentorship programs makes for an engaging, supportive, and enriching summer experience. Our summer associates select a practice area of interest (Corporate, Litigation, or Intellectual Property) and are immersed in that practice area for the duration of the program. Summer Associates work on an array of matters, often staffed on cases or deal teams, where they can gain real, hands-on experience working side by side with our lawyers. Summer associates are also encouraged to participate in our extensive pro bono opportunities. In addition to our 2L summer associates, we host first-year students in our summer associate program as Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) 1L Scholars. After spending nine weeks at the firm, our summer associates know our lawyers, understand what we do, and are ready to hit the ground running after law school.
