In an effort to recruit and nurture legal talent at an early stage, we have established a paid summer intern program for a first-year law student with a diverse background. Our first-year summer intern program coincides with our
second-year summer associate program and lasts for ten weeks. During the ten weeks, the student will perform substantive legal work, learn more about the law and our practice areas, receive constructive performance feedback, and will be mentored by members of our professional staff. We believe that this early training and guidance is invaluable to both incoming legal professionals and our firm. We have had great success with the recruitment and hiring of candidates with diverse backgrounds for our first-year summer intern and second-year summer associate programs, and most receive offers to join the firm.
Please note that our definition of a diverse background is broad, so any students who feel that they qualify for this position are encouraged to apply. In past years, we have focused our recruitment efforts on first-year law students interested in our Food and Drug and/or Environmental practice groups, and we plan to do the same this year. Please note that we plan to hire one first-year summer intern for the upcoming summer. For additional information relating to our firm, please visit our website www.khlaw.com. Interested students should email their cover letter, resume, transcripts (undergrad and law school), and a writing sample to Jennifer Ireland, Recruitment Manager, Keller and Heckman LLP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
