“Spending the summer at McGuireWoods was one of the best experiences I’ve had. The summer associate program encourages you to experience every practice area while working with people across the country in various offices, which helped me decide the type of law I wanted to practice. It’s also great to become acquainted with the people you will be working with when you join the firm. I loved my summer experience and I am so grateful to have been welcomed back as an associate.”

Pittsburgh Associate

McGuireWoods is a great place to launch your career. We bring on high performers with strong academic credentials and experience who are dedicated to client service, teamwork and excellence. In turn, we deliver a rewarding, supportive firm culture focused on your success, growth and development.

McGuireWoods is proud of its summer associates program. Each summer associate is assigned a mentor who introduces them to lawyers in their office. Summer associates are encouraged to work on projects in all areas of practice. They attend client meetings, depositions, corporate closings, trials and appellate arguments. They also prepare research memoranda and draft pleadings, briefs and corporate transaction documents. In addition, summer associates are involved in:

  • special training opportunities;
  • social events and networking; and
  • a firmwide summer associate retreat.

Summer associates also participate in McGuireWoods’ Pro Bono Mentor Program, which offers them the opportunity to work on a pro bono matter for a client.
