We're guessing you already know what law firm summer programs are all about.
So let's cut to the chase.

Joining Our Team – U.S. summer experience

Here's what you can expect during a summer with Orrick:

  1. Real Client Work  From week one, you’ll be immersed in the work we do – meeting clients, attending court proceedings and negotiations, working on issues at the core of our clients’ business strategies. We will check in regularly to make sure you are getting a range of assignments so you can explore the practice areas that interest you. You’ll of course have the opportunity to take on pro bono work.
  2. Mentoring and Coaching  We’ll set you up with formal and informal mentors as well as our in-house legal writing coach.
  3. The Orrick Academy  Our Summer Associate Academy is a two-day boot camp covering what it takes to succeed as a lawyer. Discussions will be led by Orrick lawyers and market experts on client service, networking, team building, negotiations and understanding the business of law.
  4. Making a Social Impact  You’ll have a full calendar of social and community activities where you’ll have fun, give back and build relationships that we hope will last a lifetime. This includes a special “Orrick Cares” project that each of our summer classes undertakes.
