As a law student, you’ve learned what it takes to succeed in law school. At Goodwin, we’ll help you acquire the skills you need to be a successful lawyer.
What makes Goodwin’s summer program great?
A good program gives you the chance to use what you know. A great program allows you to stretch beyond what you know. Add to that some amazing opportunities to learn more about yourself, your colleagues, and the world around you, and you have an unforgettable summer experience – one that provides a real-world perspective about daily life in our law firm. You’ll work with seasoned attorneys on challenging cases, learn some new skills through formal training programs, and have the opportunity to socialize with fellow associates and partners throughout the summer.
We must be doing something right: more than 90% of summer associates who are offered a position at Goodwin accept a position here.
Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley or Washington. Practice areas in just about every traditional and emerging field of law. You will work, learn, and connect with peers, associates, and partners at the firm. You’ll leave our program with valuable mentors, a large professional and social network, and a very good idea of what it’s like to work at Goodwin.

The Asia Track summer program involves spending eight to ten weeks in one of our US offices and two to three weeks in our Hong Kong office (accommodations provided). In addition to gaining hands-on experience in Asia, Asia Track summer associates participate in the firm’s training programs in the US, which are designed to give summer associates a general understanding of our practice and the work they would do as associates.
