Summer Associates

Take a peek inside our Summer Program "photo album"...

Our Summer Program is designed to give you a realistic sense of what it’s like to practice intellectual property law at Wolf Greenfield. You’ll have the chance to experience a wide variety of challenging client work. Along the way, you will also receive in-depth training and join in many firm events.

Although your work will come mainly from your primary practice group, you will also gain exposure to the other practice groups within the firm. For example, there may be an opportunity for you to work on both patent prosecution and IP litigation matters. Summer associates have worked on projects dealing with issues as varied as cybersquatting, hair bleach, snowboard bindings, sneakers, and suppression of free speech by the government.

You will also have the opportunity to be involved in pro bono work. If you want to work on a certain kind of matter, just ask! You will have a mentor who will provide guidance and answer questions you may have about the firm and your work assignments. Our firm has a friendly and open environment, so you will be able to help create your own, unique summer experience. At the end of the summer, we expect that you will have a realistic sense of what it’s like to work at the firm.

You’ll discover that our culture and collegial atmosphere provides many opportunities for enjoying a variety of social events and developing personal relationships as well as professional ones. We offer a host of special events aimed at allowing you to get to know people in a more casual atmosphere including: attending a Red Sox game, Paint Night, Escape the Room, and other firm-sponsored events such as softball and the Lawyers Have Heart 5k.
