"Each attorney I worked with took an interest in making the assignments a learning opportunity."

- Meredith Kirshenbaum, University of Chicago, 2011 Summer Associate

Law Students

Goldberg Kohn's summer program is the centerpiece of the firm's hiring efforts. The success of the summer program is attributable to its central philosophy: provide each summer associate with an experience that is realistic, challenging and exciting, and that exposes them to the unique advantages that Goldberg Kohn offers new attorneys. The summer program is designed to maximize opportunities for summer associates to get to know and work with the lawyers in the firm, to experience what a junior associate's life at the firm is really like, and to work on meaningful projects as an integral part of cases and deals.

One of the primary goals throughout the summer is to provide a realistic sense of life as an associate at Goldberg Kohn. The summer program is designed to enable each summer associate to demonstrate the professional qualities and skills valued in the firm's lawyers, and at the same time to expose the summer associate to the type of work done at the firm, firm culture, and the personalities of the lawyers at the firm. Goldberg Kohn is dedicated to the professional growth and training of summer associates, and introduces them to all areas of the firm's diverse practice. Summer associates are given the opportunity to work with many different lawyers over the course of the summer and the chance to obtain substantive experience.

The firm's newer attorneys are consistently impressed by how much more responsibility they are given on matters in comparison with their peers at other major law firms. It is not surprising, then, that each year Goldberg Kohn's summer associates have this same experience. The work that is given to the summer associates is the same substantive legal work that is given to full-time associates
