Summer Associates & Law Students

Our Summer Associate Program at Hinckley Allen gives participants a realistic sense of the demands, challenges, and rewards of a position within our firm. Participants gain hands-on experience—through varied work assignments—in each of our primary practice areas. Both Associate- and Partner-level mentors guide the program. Additionally, there are plenty of opportunities to get to know our attorneys outside of the office through organized sporting events, dinners, community-focused projects, and more.

Work Assignments: Summer Associates receive diverse and challenging assignments, and work alongside Partners and more Senior Associates. For example, assignments can range from a simple litigation research memorandum to assisting a Partner at a complex real estate closing. We also provide the Summer Associates a chance to get involved with out-of-office experiences, including board meetings, depositions, arbitrations, client meetings, and judicial proceedings. Work is assigned to a Summer Associate based on, among other things, availability and practice areas of interest. Ultimately, the goal is to give each Summer Associate the opportunity to work in as many different areas of practice as possible throughout their summer. Moreover, each office has a designated assignment coordinator who coordinates projects for Summer Associates. In short, our goal is to provide Summer Associates with real work similar in complexity to what they would receive as a first or second year associate.

Practice Group Assignments: Summer Associates are not assigned to a specific department during the Summer Program. Summer Associates can express a preference to receive assignments from particular practice areas. Although we make every effort to accommodate their interests, we encourage Summer Associates to work on substantive projects from a variety of practice areas during the summer. Our goal is to offer intellectually stimulating projects that give Summer Associates an opportunity to demonstrate their writing, analytical, and advocacy skills, while working alongside Partners and Associates who are deeply invested in their success at the firm.

Training: Because of the small size of our summer class, and the firm’s lean approach to staffing, our Summer Associates truly learn by doing, including joining our attorneys for meetings, negotiations, closings, depositions and court appearances. In addition to a wide variety of assignments that provide invaluable “on-the-ground” training, our Summer Associates are provided with numerous educational opportunities throughout the Summer Program. Trainings are focused on such topics as legal writing, skills development, law firm economics, project management and tips for how to succeed as an Associate at Hinckley Allen.

Mentoring: Each Summer Associate is assigned three mentors, typically one Associate and two Partner co-mentors, from a range of practice areas, including the practice area where the Summer Associate has the strongest interest. The mentors assist the Summer Associates in any aspect of the Summer Associate program, as well as familiarize them with the firm’s policies, practices and procedures. In addition, the mentors may provide evaluations and feedback to the Summer Associates on their work product.

Social Events: The Summer Program is structured to give our Summer Associates a balance between work and social gatherings. A variety of social events are planned throughout the summer that provide summer associates with the opportunity to get to know our attorneys away from the office.

In addition, we offer training programs designed to strengthen our associates’ business acumen on topics such as budgeting, billing, profitability, and legal project management.

External training programs are encouraged as well. The firm maintains a membership with Practicing Law Institute (PLI), which is a leading CLE provider. PLI offers unlimited access to live programs, webinars, and audio briefings on a wide variety of topics. The library issues each associate login credentials to access the PLI website. Attorneys may also attend outside training or CLE programs, bar association activities, and professional conferences.
