“The experience I had as a summer associate at Dentons was everything I could have hoped for and more. It was apparent from the start just how much value the Firm attributes to its associates. Throughout the summer, the program offered highly individualized mentoring and professional feedback, encouraging each associate to explore his or her interests in a variety of different practice areas. I, personally, had the privilege of working with partners and associates from the real estate, capital markets, corporate, and litigation practice groups. No matter which practice group I worked with, I always felt that those with whom I worked were deeply invested in my personal growth and learning as an aspiring lawyer and future member of the team. The quality of people at the firm is second to none, and I can say wholeheartedly that by the end of the summer I truly felt like I had been welcomed into a new family, a family that I cannot wait to return to in the fall.”

“Being a summer associate at Dentons provided the perfect introduction to my legal career. I was exposed to a number of substantive assignments and practice areas, including impactful pro bono cases. While the wealth of professional opportunities at Dentons is unparalleled, the lasting relationships I made at the firm was truly exceptional. Both associates and partners invested time and effort in the summer associates and couldn’t have been more helpful or approachable. I couldn’t have asked for a more rewarding, challenging, and exciting summer.”
