McDermott Will & Emery is seeking 2L summer associates to join us for our 10 week 2024 Summer Associate Program. Our program offers summer associates a realistic introduction to the practice of law and day-to-day life as a McDermott associate. The summer associate program provides meaningful responsibility and feedback that is consistent with a junior associate experience. Summer associates are given the opportunity to accept assignments with many of our practice groups during the summer. This allows summers to experience the type of work they are interested in first-hand and ultimately steer them toward the type of work they enjoy.

In 2024, we will host formal summer programs in our Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC offices. With the exception of our Intellectual Property group, McDermott does not hire summer associates into specific practice areas. However, our first-year associates are placed into practice areas. Therefore, we seek to align summer associates general practice interests with local office practice representation. Below is an overview of the general practice areas which we expect to place our 2024 summer class as first year associates.
