The summer associate program at Devine Millimet is designed to expose law school students who have completed their second year of law school to a wide variety of legal practices. Summer associates have the opportunity to attend trials, depositions, mediations, closings, will signings and client conferences, while conducting legal research, writing legal papers and articles, and performing other projects for ongoing cases and clients. We hire summer associates judiciously so that each summer associate will be eligible to receive an offer for full-time employment with Devine Millimet after law school.
Summer associates are assigned an informal mentor who can provide professional guidance and insight into the practice of law at Devine Millimet. The program is intense, and each summer associate is reviewed twice during the course of the program.
The Firm's Future Generation of Leaders
At Devine Millimet, our first-year associates are chosen because we believe they will become an integral part of our legal team. We look at each associate as a valued addition to our firm with whom we hope to practice for years and who will help us build the next generation of leaders.
New associates who join Devine Millimet practice primarily in litigation or corporate/business law. New associates typically work in our Manchester, New Hampshire office. Each new lawyer is given a mentor within his or her practice group, and this mentor works closely with the associate to nurture his or her development.
Devine Millimet looks for individuals who have a proven track record of academic success and have made contributions to their community, their previous jobs, and to outside activities. While we value job experiences prior to law school, this is by no means a necessary pre-requisite to joining our firm.
Unlike other firms, new associates at Devine Millimet do not spend the first years of practice primarily in the library doing research. Instead, our associates immediately begin client interaction with their mentor and other attorneys, integrating legal research into direct client contact. We believe in giving a new lawyer as much responsibility as he or she can handle.
If you have a proven track record of success and would like to work for one of New England's premier law firms, we invite you to apply for a position.
