Barrett McNagny's summer associate program is a key component of the recruiting process of our firm and is our principal source for hiring first-year associates. The summer program spans a 10- to 12- week period beginning in May.

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 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 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.

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, as well as encouraging involvement with community service projects. These activities give summer associates the opportunity to explore artistic, cultural, and sporting events, as well as the many summer festivals that Fort Wayne offers, with our attorneys and clients.
