SUMMER ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
Our summer program is designed to give law students a realistic view of what it is like to practice as a first-year attorney at our firm. We challenge you with meaningful work assignments that reflect the breadth and the depth of labor and employment law. We do not use a formal rotation program. Instead, we encourage you to explore what interests you by choosing your own work assignments from a database of available projects.
We also recognize that training is essential to your success as a summer associate. In addition to the one-on-one training you receive while working alongside our attorneys, we offer formal training programs that will help you learn the skills you need to succeed at Fisher Phillips. Our summer associates also have many opportunities to observe court appearances, depositions, client meetings and mediations. Each summer associate is assigned an associate mentor who serves as a resource throughout the summer program.
Our summer program is not all about work. We also host a variety of social events to give you the opportunity to meet us outside of the office.
First-year law students positions are only available through our partnership with the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) program in our Los Angeles and Irvine offices, and through local diversity bar association programs. Positions for first-year law students are only offered through these programs. Our LCLD program is no longer accepting applications for 2023.
Fisher Phillips interviews second and third-year law students on campus at select schools and job fairs each year. Applications for the 2024 Summer Associate Program are accepted through the On Campus Interview Process (OCI). Please see below for the list of schools we will be attending this OCI season. If we do not participate in On Campus Interviews at your school, we encourage you to apply to our posted summer opportunities on our Careers page. These opportunities will be posted on our website on June 1, 2023.
