Summer associate program
Our, first half, six-week Summer Associate Program is designed to give a realistic view of the practice at Porter Hedges. Each summer associate is assigned a partner and associate advisor and is given an opportunity to work in several areas of practice within the firm. Work assignments consist of a variety of "real-life" projects similar to those handled by our new associates. This may involve attending trials, hearings, depositions, and negotiating sessions, drafting documents and conducting legal research. The firm encourages students to broaden their work experience by completing a second session at another firm.
