Summer Associate Program
We are proud that many of our longest tenured attorneys and members of our firm’s management began their careers with Cole Schotz as summer associates.

What to expect
During our Summer Associate program, you can expect for our dedicated Summer Associate Committee to deliver varied, distinct and interesting assignments that are diverse in subject matter, attorney relationships and work product. Attendance assignments are incorporated into the program to give you the opportunity to observe experienced attorneys trying cases, arguing motions, negotiating contracts or counseling clients.
As a part of our program, training sessions are conducted in various practice areas, and, in some cases, summer associates are given an opportunity to demonstrate application of the principles they have been taught. Firm-sponsored social functions, as well as community outreach events, are arranged throughout the summer, allowing us to get to know each other outside of the work environment.
To ensure you receive a proper balance of assignments, a member of the Summer Associate Committee conducts weekly workload meetings with each summer associate. These meetings also provide you with an opportunity to make inquiries as well as provide feedback about your summer experience.
