Summer associate program

Spencer Fane is committed to deliberate and careful growth, as is reflected by our small summer associate classes. The small class size allows our summer associates to take on substantial responsibilities right away, work with partners directly and informally, and enjoy the satisfaction of meaningful client contact at an early stage in their development. In addition to extensive practical experience, our summer associates enjoy opportunities to interact with our attorneys in social settings, as we believe it's important to foster real relationships among our lawyers.
