Hiring Need: Summer Associate
Experience: The Firm’s Summer Associate Program is largely dedicated to 2L law students who are seeking employment, training, education, and mentorship for the summer months between the student’s second and third year of law school.
Job Description: Pullano & Farrow (“P&F” or “the Firm”) has believed in the importance of a strong “Summer Associate” program since the Firm’s inception. P&F is structured and operates differently than other law firms and, as a result, the Firm believes that it should introduce the Firm’s philosophies to talented law students through a formal Summer program. The Firm’s program provides law students with the knowledge and understanding of how P&F operates while gaining real world education and experience in practicing law in a mid-sized law firm. Summer Associates work along with the attorneys, paralegals, and administrative staff on real projects for the Firm’s clients in the Firm’s continuing efforts to provide “A Different Client Experience.”
The Firm is currently structured through six separate Practice Groups: Health Care Law; Business & Corporate Law; Labor & Employment Law; Wills, Trusts & Estates Law; Real Estate Law; and Litigation Law (Commercial and Personal). While the Firm strives to introduce the Summer Associates to each of the Firm’s formal practice groups to allow the Summer Associate to understand the different legal services the Firm provides to the community, the Firm seeks to find law students who have a passion for a specific area of the law and to provide those students with a real understanding of how the student can turn that passion into a successful law career. The Firm is seeking law students who have a desire to choose their own career path, as opposed to being randomly placed in a practice group by the employer law firm.
Summer Associates that are selected to participate in the Firm’s program can expect to receive assistance, training, and mentorship from the Firm’s attorneys, paralegals, and staff. The Summer Associates will experience direct contact with the Firm’s clients and referral sources and will further be invited to participate in social and networking events, community events, as well as team-building P&F events.
