Applying to Be a Summer Associate

Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP’s summer associate program is highly competitive. The Firm offers an unprecedented level of responsibility to our summers.

For example, summers have attended mediations, second-chaired depositions and drafted complaints and memoranda filed in federal court. Summers have also played an active role in trial (e.g. a race discrimination matter in federal court in Tennessee, and a wrongful death case on behalf of an African-American who suffered from sickle cell anemia in federal court in California).

Many of our summer associates go on to prestigious federal clerkships and coveted jobs in public interest law in the non-profit, government, and for-profit sectors. We have offered one-year litigation fellowships and full-time associate positions to summer associates who prove to be exemplary, even when measured against their incredible peers.
