Summer Associate Program

Our Summer Associate Program provides first and second-year law students with a realistic perspective into the practice of law at Vandeventer Black. The focus of the program is to provide meaningful work opportunities, out-of-office legal experiences, and opportunities to network and socialize, while simultaneously fostering the growth and development of summer associates from 1Ls to 2Ls, and from 2Ls to full-time associates at the firm. The success of our program is evidenced by the significant number of our attorneys who began their legal careers as summer associates at Vandeventer Black.

Partners Anne Bibeau and Tony Mazzeo serve on the firm’s Recruiting Committee and oversee the Summer Associate Program.  Summer associates receive training, work allocation and mentoring from the Committee. During a typical summer, summer associates perform assignments in a number of the firm’s practice areas and have an opportunity to work with multiple attorneys. In addition to accommodating known areas of interest, our program’s work allocation scheme offers summer associates an introduction to new areas of practice they may not have considered exploring.

Vandeventer Black’s Summer Associate Program emphasizes the exposure of summer associates to the real world application of the work they perform in the office. In addition to researching and drafting legal memoranda, assisting with deposition preparations and the myriad other “real work” opportunities available as part of our program, summer associates are encouraged to shadow attorneys at client meetings, depositions, and court, so that they can experience, firsthand, the impact of their work product outside our office walls.
