Four law students have joined Shutts & Bowen for its 10-week 2017 Summer Clerkship Program.
The firm’s program is designed to provide an intellectually challenging and professionally gratifying experience for law students. Students have full freedom to explore any and all practice areas that interest them and delve into the different aspects of our legal services. Summer Associates are paired with a mentor within the firm to offer insights into the history and culture of Shutts and gain an accurate sense of what it is like to work at a nationally-recognized law firm.
The students will take part in firm-sponsored social events and community service projects throughout the summer in addition to attending client meetings, depositions court hearings and other proceedings.
