There is nothing more valuable than “learning by doing,” which is why our summer associates engage in as many hands-on opportunities to learn as possible. We offer formal training programs, out-of-office experiences to attend depositions, client meetings, hearings and other hands-on learning experiences.
Alston & Bird’s commitment to pro bono is uncompromising. Each summer associate is given a pro bono mentor for the summer and is strongly encouraged to participate in pro bono work during the program. Such assignments carry the same weight with the Hiring Committee as the real client work they do throughout the summer.
