Law Students

Summer Associate Program

Woods Aitken knows that one of the best ways to learn about the “hands-on” practice of law, as well as the workings of a law firm, is through a summer associate program. Our summer associates are given the opportunity to participate in as many aspects of the practice of law as possible, including legal research, drafting legal documents, participation in conferences with clients and other attorneys, and attendance at court proceedings and negotiations. In short, our summer associates are provided responsibilities similar to full-time associates, and afforded the same professionalism.
