Mound Cotton Wollan & Greengrass LLP utilizes its Summer Associate Program as its most effective means of recruiting and evaluating its potential first-year associate class for the following year. Each Fall, MCWG visits a number of prominent law schools to invite several students who will have completed two years of law school curriculum by the next Summer to join us and to learn what it is like to be an associate at MCWG. Summer Associates are treated as entry-level attorneys. Typical assignments allow Summer Associates and the firm to evaluate the type of work and work product and to judge the potential for employment at the firm following graduation. Assignments vary from legal research and writing to drafting discovery and motions, conducting document reviews, observing depositions and courtroom activities, and participating as part of a trial team. Summer Associates also are encouraged to take part in MCWG's accredited CLE program. Because MCWG has an international practice and is national coordinating counsel for several large insurance companies, there are some opportunities for travel.
