Our Survey Says

  • “Seyfarth has an unparalleled summer associate program that provides each summer associate with the opportunity to work on and/or attend trials, depositions, mediation, and/or arbitration. Seyfarth also offers unique trainings throughout the summer, so each summer associate is provided with exposure to substantive areas of their practice group, in addition to advice from partners and senior associates on how to succeed. When I was a summer associate, I worked one on one with partners who provided meaningful advice and feedback. …”
  • “…Seyfarth's summer program truly embodies camaraderie, because attorneys would take us out to lunch every day, and we had fun events planned each week. For example, we attended cooking classes, sporting events, and tours of downtown Los Angeles. Different attorneys would attend each social event, so the summer program offers a unique opportunity to meet colleagues within your practice group and outside of your practice group.”
  • “Seyfarth has exceeded all expectations. Assigning attorneys genuinely cared about my development and growth, and went out of their way to ensure that summer associates were provided with opportunities that were on our ‘wish list.’ … Assigning attorneys also had realistic expectations and deadlines, so I never felt overwhelmed when I received a project. Attorneys at the Century City office truly embodied an ‘open-door’ policy, such that I always felt comfortable reaching out to them if I had questions or needed advice.”
  • “My favorite summer events included attending a baseball game at Dodger Stadium, and a fun cooking class.”

The Firm Says

Seyfarth’s full-time, paid Summer Associate Program offers a strong educational component supported by practical learning opportunities. Our Summer Associates are given the opportunity to develop robust, hands-on skills that build upon and complement their formal law school education. Summer Associates work hand in hand with Seyfarth attorneys who are dedicated to ensuring their continued professional development. A team of partner and associate mentors also provides individualized feedback and coaching throughout the Program.

We look for law students who possess strong academic credentials and a demonstrated interest in a specific practice area. This interest is evidenced through coursework, certificate programs, prior work experience, and a strong desire to develop within a specified practice area upon graduation.
