Summer associate program
New associates (both from law school and laterals) will be assigned a peer mentor. This assignment will formally remain in place for two years with the expectation that an informal relationship would continue indefinitely. All associates will also be assigned a partner mentor. Both the peer mentor and the partner mentor will be identified from a pool of people who have volunteered to serve as a mentor. A peer mentor should be at least a third year associate who has been with the firm for at least two years. The role of a peer mentor is to provide new associates with someone near their experience level to whom the new associate will be comfortable bringing questions or issues. Those responsibilities will include setting goals for the relationship; establishing time commitments and logistics related to the relationship; providing practical information about day-to-day life as an attorney at Rutan &Tucker. The peer mentor will also act as a resource to answer questions regarding the firm and work assignments and will discuss the traditions and culture that make Rutan & Tucker special.
