We take great pride in our track record. Our summer associates consistently tell us that their experience provided a genuine understanding of life at the firm, and a majority accept our offer to join Bryan Cave after graduation.
During the summer program, you will meet clients. You will attend depositions, oral arguments, closings, board meetings and observe courtroom and discovery procedures. You also will tackle substantive, challenging work on par with work done by first and second year associates. This work will include research, drafting parts of briefs and writing assignments. You will receive formal and informal feedback from accomplished lawyers with whom you have worked. You will become familiar with Bryan Cave's core values and how we live these values.
Bryan Cave sponsors a variety of cultural, educational and purely recreational activities for its summer associates. Along with the sightseeing, the dining and entertainment, you will have ample opportunity to enjoy your co-workers’ company. For many of our summer associates, getting to know our people is the best part of the summer experience.
