Our Survey Says

  • “Summers get opportunities to join the same teams as first years and pick up assignments, join calls, participate in decision-making discussions, and work on documents.”
  • “Everyone at Proskauer is friendly. We had one formal after-work event per week, which was perfect. They made sure we met folks and had lunch with different attorneys.”
  • “The social aspects of the firm's summer associate program were well-organized and executed successfully. There was ample opportunity to connect and interact with firm attorneys, from junior associates to partners, and spend time with our summer class.”

The Firm Says

Our summer program is designed to closely replicate the experience of being a lawyer at Proskauer. Summer associates work on complex and challenging legal matters, learn from leaders in the field, and experience Proskauer’s diverse and inclusive culture. We take every opportunity to show summer associates why their work matters—each will work on a particular pro bono matter. Every day at Proskauer represents important training—from working with experienced professionals on client matters to receiving real-time feedback and direction. Summer associates have the chance to enhance their understanding of key areas by participating in partner-led, interactive training workshops, including sessions on corporate negotiations, the lifecycle of a transaction, mediation, and mock trials. At the end of the day, it’s all about the people—so summer associates will have many opportunities to join in social, cultural, or recreational activities to get better acquainted with their fellow summers and lawyers at the firm.
