    At Fenwick, summer associates will work on real-world assignments critical to our clients’ business strategies. Every individual joins a mentoring circle—with one partner, one junior associate and one member from the firm’s diversity committee or an affinity group—to help navigate the Fenwick experience. Summer associates are also supported with legal training and development programs, and partake in social and networking opportunities that are a hallmark of our friendly culture and essential to developing a professional career.

    Year after year we are wowed by the talented and accomplished people who join our team for the summer.
