Polsinelli is always looking for bright, enthusiastic law students with an eye towards developing a career to join our summer associate program. Our summer associates have an opportunity to work alongside associates and shareholders on significant legal matters gaining first hand law firm experience. Roles and responsibilities of a summer associate include, but are not limited to, drafting a variety of legal documents such as motions, memos and organizational documents; interpreting laws, rulings, and regulations; examining legal and other data to determine strategies for clients; and analyzing the probable outcomes of cases, negotiations and other legal transactions.

The summer associate program lasts ten weeks. While you are here we expect that you will work hard, take initiative and start building relationships. You will gain exposure to a variety of practice areas and will participate in training programs designed specifically for the summer program. You will also have the opportunity to meet attorneys from throughout the firm at several social events throughout the summer.

We host summer associate programs in multiple cities and interview at several schools and job fairs across the country.
