Summer Associate Programs

BakerHostetler’s summer program is designed to give law students exposure to many facets of the firm’s practice. Summer associates attend conferences, “Lunch-and-Learn” practice group sessions, depositions, trials, and other court proceedings, labor arbitrations, administrative proceedings, and business transaction closings. We closely monitor work assignments to ensure that summer associates work on multiple projects with a variety of lawyers in different practice areas.

Each summer associate is partnered with a senior associate, oftentimes former summer associates, who help facilitate introductions to other attorneys in the office and offer advice and direction about our firm, office culture, and clients. We routinely provide feedback, both formal and informal, throughout your summer with us. You will receive ongoing comments as you work on assignments and the attorneys you work with will also formally evaluate your performance as assignments are completed. We provide a final evaluation at the end of the program.

Our summer program provides a strong balance of realistic work with the opportunity to enjoy the camaraderie that comes from being part of BakerHostetler. We hold a number of social events throughout the summer, enabling you and our attorneys to get to know one another in a more relaxed atmosphere. A typical summer tenure lasts six to 12 weeks.
