BGD’s Benjamin Lewis Explains How to Make the Most of a Summer Associate Program
Attorney Benjamin Lewis provided career advice to young lawyers in a recent Louisville Business First story. In the article, he stressed the importance of taking advantage of summer associate programs and other career building opportunities as a law student.
According to Lewis, many law students miss out by not participating in summer associate programs. “There are a very limited number of good summer associate programs,” he said. “A lot of students set their sights on them and ignore other opportunities in the legal field that could be quite good.”
If a summer associate program is unavailable to a student,” do whatever you can to get into a law firm, even if you have to work for free,” Lewis said.
Lewis was hired through the Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP Summer Associate Program.
