Sherman & Howard’s innovative summer program is fast-paced, challenging, and feedback-rich.
Our summer associates see and experience life as fully engaged associates in one of America’s best-managed law firms. As a firm, we celebrate teamwork, learning, and well-being.
Our summer program features:
Our program culminates with a challenging, deep-dive, practice-specific assignment that will enable our summer associates to demonstrate their research, writing, analytical, oral-presentation, and time-management skills. All associates will generate professional work products, present their assignment results to attorneys across the firm, and gain experience they can use to advance their careers.
We will assign both an associate and a member for personalized and dedicated support. Mentors support summer associates with work-assignment guidance, coaching, and feedback.
We know how critical frequent, high-quality feedback is at this stage in our associates’ careers, so we provide it often, with advice on ways to hone their skills. We leverage technology to make delivering and receiving feedback easy, and our culture encourages lots of candid input—in all directions.
For the first part of the summer, our summer associates will work in a variety of practice areas and receive litigation and transactional assignments. At the program’s midpoint, they will have the opportunity to select a service area to focus on for the remainder of the summer.
