Devine-Millimet - Summer Associate Program

Summer Associate Program


The Summer Associate Program at Devine Millimet is designed to expose law school students to a wide variety of legal practices; giving law students the opportunity to attend trials, depositions, mediations, closings, will signings, and client conferences, while conducting legal research, writing legal papers and articles, and performing other projects for ongoing cases and clients. Summer associates are assigned an informal mentor who can provide professional guidance and insight into the practice of law at Devine Millimet. The program is intense, and each summer associate is reviewed twice during the course of the program.

We hire summer associates judiciously so they will be eligible to receive an offer for full-time employment with Devine Millimet upon completing law school and passing the bar.

Requirements for admittance into Devine Millimet's Summer Associate Program:

  • Completion of second year of law school
  • Academic excellence

My summer at Devine Millimet was a crash course in practical legal training. Every day, I worked closely with attorneys from a broad range of practice groups. I received detailed feedback on my work, industry-specific knowledge, and general mentorship from each attorney that I worked with. At the same time, I was given the opportunity to exercise my independent judgment—I interacted with clients, drafted legal documents, and took an active role in case management. I would recommend this program to any law student who wants to practice law in a full-service law firm (or elsewhere), and who enjoys facing—and overcoming—professional challenges.

Devine Millimet’s summer associate program gives a realistic snapshot of what attorneys actually do on a daily basis. It helped me to understand and put in perspective the right expectations of what it takes to be an attorney.
