Every year, attorneys from Miller & Martin participate in a number of on-campus interview programs at law schools throughout the country and review resumes from numerous law schools to help identify strong candidates for the firm’s Summer Associate Program. Miller & Martin’s Summer Program is a six-week program that consists of both 1L and 2L students. We look for candidates with strong academic achievements, law journal and extracurricular efforts, and applicable career experience. Our goal in the law school recruiting program is to find individuals who have the potential for an outstanding legal career and who can contribute significantly to the firm, our clients and the communities in which we live and work.
We understand this program is a two-way street and therefore make every effort to expose our Summer Associates to a wide range of activities, including:
- Exposure to firm clients via onsite client visits.
- Exposure to the court system.
- Opportunities to produce and assist on various client legal documents.
- Participating in various research projects.
- Opportunities to explore and gain a better understanding of the different practice areas within the firm.
- Social outings and activities to promote networking, as well as an immersion into the culture of the community.
An important feature of our Summer Program is our mentoring program. In an effort to provide guidance and insight into the legal career, each Summer Associate is matched with a mentoring team to serve as a resource during projects, and provide insight into important issues, to include work-life balance and firm-culture.
Typically, Miller & Martin looks to the summer associate classes to fill our 1st year associate needs. With that in mind, we make a conscious effort to expose candidates to various Department Chairs and Hiring Committee members, all of whom assist in tracking their progress and performance throughout the program. In an effort to provide ample feedback, we conduct mid-summer and end-of-summer reviews with each Summer Associate.
Questions about our summer program, as well as application materials from interested students, can be directed to the firm’s Assistant Director of Human Resources, Caitlin Ross.
