The emphasis of our summer program is to provide law students with a realistic view of life as an associate at Nixon Peabody. You will be provided with the opportunity to cultivate skills through a combination of training programs and mentoring. We provide our summer associates with training in practical skills, ranging from setting goals and building personal networks to time management and legal writing. Every summer associate is paired with at least one mentor to provide guidance before, during and after the summer program.
Nixon Peabody’s collegial environment and extraordinary resources make the firm a terrific place to begin my legal career. As a summer associate, I addressed substantive legal issues, interacted directly with clients, worked closely with partners and associates, and received constructive feedback. — Summer Associate, New York
