Law Student Programs
Many considerations play into the decision of which law firm to join for the summer, including the firm's culture and office environment, the variety and complexity of work assignments and the opportunities for professional and personal growth. Greensfelder’s Summer Associate Program and Diversity Fellowship Program are opportunities to gain experience, become a part of the team and get a glimpse of what being an associate looks like.
Summer Associate Program
Our summer associates are considered more than just students – they become involved in the daily fabric of our practice. In addition to delivering accurate and concise research memoranda, we believe our summer associates should learn to address the business and practical problems our clients face. Typically, our summer associates have the opportunity to interact with clients, under the guidance of our experienced attorneys. They also attend meetings, depositions, mediations, hearings and closings with the attorneys with whom they work. Ultimately, summer associates have an accurate and thorough picture of what it is like to practice law as an associate at Greensfelder. Learn more here.
Diversity Fellowship Program
The Greensfelder Diversity Fellowship is a unique opportunity for first-year law students who have demonstrated a commitment to diversity. Each summer, one student will be selected for this program that involves:
- Spending the first half of the summer working at Greensfelder.
- Working in-house at a St. Louis-based client of the firm for the second half of the summer.
This experience will provide meaningful client interaction through a variety of opportunities from both in-house and outside counsel perspectives. At Greensfelder, this Diversity Fellow will spend five weeks receiving training and building relationships with other summer associates, attorneys and staff. For the next four weeks, the Diversity Fellow will experience working in-house in a corporate environment. Learn more here.
