BrownWinick is thrilled to welcome six law students to our 2021 Summer Associate Program. The 12-week program is designed to offer second-year law students the benefit of working at a full-service law firm while providing the personal attention more characteristic of a smaller firm. Summer associates work closely with lawyers of all levels on cases and transactions that reflect work typically done by junior associates while gaining a broad view of the firm’s comprehensive practices. Each summer associate is assigned an associate mentor to help them navigate the opportunities presented to them and find success in the program.
“We’re excited to welcome this very talented and energetic group of students to our summer associate program for 2021,” said Brian McCormac, Recruiting Committee Chairperson. “We pride ourselves on offering our summer associates an exciting, engaging, and real-world experience that helps them grow as a professional and individual.”
BrownWinick also offers a wide variety of educational programs and social events to allow summer associates to gel as a cohort, get to know the attorneys, and immerse themselves in the firm’s culture. You can learn more about BrownWinick’s Summer Associate Program here.
