Real Work, Real Experience

Olshan makes sure that all summer associates have the opportunity to watch attorneys in action — in meetings, depositions, court appearances, client meetings, conference calls, trips to the printer, etc.

Summer Associates

Olshan's Summer Associate Program is designed for second-year law students and serves as the primary vehicle for hiring first-year associates.

Olshan's Summer Associate Program is designed for second-year law students and serves as the primary vehicle for hiring first-year associates. Our summer classes are selectively small, so that each summer associate comes away with a clear idea of what life as a first-year attorney is like at Olshan.

Life as a Summer Associate

As a summer associate, you will take part in a variety of assignments in order to experience as many transactions and cases as possible. You will have substantial exposure to both partners and associates, including the opportunity to watch them in action — in meetings, depositions, court appearances, client meetings, conference calls…even trips to the printer. Likewise, you will have ample opportunity to demonstrate your unique skills in a fast-paced, professional environment.

To help make your summer with the firm a productive learning experience, we also assign two associates to act as mentors. Your mentors will be available to answer questions or to address any concerns you may have.

We also plan social events and other professional and cultural activities, enabling you to get to know our attorneys and staff on a more personal level.

How can you become a part of Olshan's future?

During the recruiting season, we visit the following schools:

  • Brooklyn Law School
  • Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
  • Columbia University School of Law
  • Fordham University School of Law
  • New York University School of Law
  • Rutgers University School of Law-Newark
  • Washington University in St. Louis, Vanderbilt University School of Law, and Tulane University Law School at the New York Job Fair

While we expect to visit these law schools, our full-time attorneys come from many different law schools and we encourage applicants from schools that we may not visit. If your school is not listed, please send your resume, cover letter and a copy of your law school transcript to Teresa Lambe at tlambe@olshanlaw.com. We will contact you if it seems appropriate to schedule an interview.
