Summer Associate Program

Montgomery McCracken searches for bright, motivated and accomplished law students who strive to meet our firm’s high standards of work.

We treat our summer associates as full-time associates, giving them comparable tasks to prepare them for their burgeoning legal careers. We offer our summers a wide range of opportunities to work on assignments parallel to their interests. We also arrange for summer associates to attend depositions, trials, labor arbitrations, meetings with clients, corporate closings, and real estate settlements with our lawyers, so they can observe all facets of practicing law. Additionally, we introduce our summer associates to the various professional departments in our firm – from litigation support to marketing, business development and knowledge management– so that our summer associates gain a better understanding of the “business of law.”

We match our summer associates with both partner and associate mentors, who will meet with our summers in one-on-one lunches on a weekly basis to provide guidance and mentorship. Our goal is to immerse you in Montgomery McCracken’s culture—a culture that focuses on collegiality, client service and the highest legal standards. We call Philadelphia our home and we like to show it off to our summer associates by holding weekly social activities that offer opportunities to explore and see what Philadelphia has to offer professionals.

“The experience I gained from my time as a Summer Associate at Montgomery McCracken was invaluable. Program coordinators spent time identifying my interest areas and thoughtfully provided me with assignments that not only matched my interests, but challenged me and introduced me to new practice areas. The constant feedback and support made me feel both prepared and excited to join the firm.” -Mara Smith, Summer Associate
