Summer Associate Program
Carmody offers an immersive and broad-ranging eight-week summer associate program for second year law students looking to get hands-on experience in a leading full-service firm. Because we believe that growth happens through experimentation, program participants receive assignments in as many of our varied practice areas as possible. Participant research and draft briefs; shadow lawyers at court events, administrative hearings, and depositions; participate in closings and transactional work; and learn to give practical, client-centered advice. Summer associates spend time in our New Haven, Stamford and Waterbury offices, and have the opportunity to receive substantive training under the guidance and mentorship of some of the preeminent thought leaders and practitioners in each practice area.
“The wonderful part about Carmody’s summer associate program is that they encourage you to explore many different areas of the law. Any interest I had or area of practice I want to be exposed to, they find a way to get me involved in a project. The structured program allows a summer associate to have exposure to many different facets of the law with a feedback system to help you hone in on your skill sets. Another wonderful feature about the program is that you are matched with a mentor with similar interests to help teach and guide you through the summer. As a rising 3L law student, this experience has been invaluable in shaping my knowledge, interests and direction in specific areas of the law.
The culture at Carmody is clearly a driving force behind their success. The attorneys and staff are welcoming and approachable to help in any way that they can. From the minute you walk through the doors, they treat you as a valued member of the team and an equal.”
