BGD's Summer Associate Program

At Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, summer associates have the chance to meet influential people in the communities we serve, and to be exposed to a variety of work assignments in many of our practice areas. We provide the opportunity to become involved directly in interesting and challenging legal work covering different areas of the law early in a legal career.

Our summer program is designed to give summer associates a realistic view of the firm's practices. As a summer associate, you will work closely with colleagues in the firm's various areas of practice, receive continuous feedback and, as often as possible, have the opportunity to consult with clients and to attend trials, hearings, oral arguments, negotiating sessions and closings.

Each summer associate is assigned a partner and an associate mentor. Additional, informal opportunities for mentoring include involvement with our affinity groups, like LCLD and the BGD Women’s Forum.

We help summer associates do their best work by providing continuous and constructive feedback. We work with each associate to review their individual and team goals, and to identify methods for improvement to help achieve those goals.

Relationships matter at BGD, and our summer program encourages each class to build and strengthen relationships throughout our firm. We know that our best ideas will take a team effort to implement. We take time to build and strengthen our interpersonal relationships because we know that strong teams have the grit and the agility to pursue creative and innovative practices. As a summer associate, you can expect to share experiences with the BGD team at cultural and athletic events in the communities we serve.

If you share our entrepreneurial attitude and are driven to pursue excellence through creative and innovative practices that will meet our clients’ needs today and tomorrow, then we want to hear from you. We are committed to attracting highly motivated and talented individuals for our summer associate program, each with unique backgrounds and perspectives. We seek candidates who share our values and are excited about creating a career with BGD.
