Bradley’s summer associates receive an in-depth introduction to the culture of a large, dynamic law firm. Participants are asked to perform real, substantive work and are included in trials, depositions, closings, negotiations, and client conferences. Summer associates chart their own paths, with the opportunity to choose their assignments and gain experience with a variety of attorneys in many practice areas. We also encourage our summer associates to socialize with our attorneys outside of the office to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a part of our firm. Summer associates are invited to participate in numerous events with our attorneys throughout the summer, ranging from community service opportunities to dinner at one of our lawyer’s homes.
The 2023 summer program in Birmingham, Dallas, Houston, Huntsville, Jackson, and Tampa will be conducted from May 8th - August 18th. The summer program in Charlotte and Nashville will be conducted from May 8th - July 28th.
First year law students are required to join the firm for a minimum of six weeks (and a maximum of ten weeks) during the program dates.
First-year law students are eligible and encouraged to apply through OCI or directly.
