K&L Gates: Summer Associate Program
K&L Gates summer associate program is designed to give law students the full picture of the firm and see what makes it a great place to grow your career. As a summer associate, you will learn about our clients, our practices, our lawyers, and our culture. You’ll sample projects from different practice areas and work as part of a team to serve our clients. You’ll participate in Pro Bono work that enriches the communities we serve. Our summer associates begin to develop the professional skills and competencies that will serve them well throughout their careers.
We pair our summer associates with mentors who provide guidance on identifying and completing substantive work assignments while managing the demands of life as an associate.
And let’s not forget the social events! Our summer social events reflect our unique firm culture and provide ample opportunities to develop lasting relationships with our lawyers and your fellow summer associates. The network you’re building now will last you throughout your career.
