Summer Associate Program

Barrett & McNagny's summer associate program is a key component of the recruiting process at our firm, and our principal source for hiring first-year associates. The summer program spans over a 10-12 week period beginning in May and ending in early August. The primary goals of our program are to give participants substantive, hands-on experience with our practice and an opportunity to work with the members of the firm. Our program is designed to provide our summer associates with as much of a "real life" experience as possible. They receive substantive projects for actual clients. Our summer associates get exposure to the court system; get to participate in depositions, transactions, and trials; research legal issues and draft documents; and have the opportunity to work with lawyers in a variety of practice areas.

Each summer associate is provided with an office, a computer and a shared legal assistant. Since there is no formal rotation schedule, summer associates receive project assignments directly from attorneys practicing in all of Barrett & McNagny's practice groups. In addition to regular feedback from individual assigning attorneys as projects are completed, summer associates receive feedback from an attorney who reviews the work specifically to help them improve writing skills. Summer associates are also given an informal mid-summer evaluation and a formal evaluation at the end of the summer program.

In addition to the summer associate program, Barrett & McNagny also recruits a first-year law student to participate in the Midwest Alliance for Health Education's Summer Research Program. This program is a unique educational experience for medical and law students. The law student receives a stipend from the Alliance and completes a clinical research manuscript on a timely legal issue related to health care law.

Barrett & McNagny hosts a number of formal and informal social activities throughout the summer. These activities include some of our annual client entertainment activities, and various associate social activities, which provide the summer associates opportunity to explore, with our attorneys and clients, the artistic, cultural and sporting events, and the many summer festivals that Fort Wayne offers.
