Gunster’s Summer Associate Program

Each summer, Gunster offers a select group of 2L law students the opportunity to experience and participate in on-going client matters across multiple practices.

The Summer Associate Program is open to law students who have completed two years of coursework. Typically, 4 to 8 summer associates work at the firm – among several of our offices – each year. Participation in this program can be the first step to becoming a Gunster attorney.

Summer associates gain valuable, real-world experience in a diverse, business-focused law firm.


Multiple practices
Summer associates work on assignments from a number of Gunster’s 18 practices, and are able to narrow their practice interests as the summer progresses.

Participants hone practical writing and analytical skills through a formal feedback and evaluation process.

Each summer associate is assigned a Gunster shareholder and an associate who act as the summer associate’s mentor and advisor.

Firmwide exposure
Gunster has 13 offices across the state, and summer associates have multiple opportunities to work and socialize with attorneys and other professionals throughout the firm.

Real-world practice
Where appropriate, summer associates attend trials, hearings, client meetings, closings, and phone conferences.

And a little fun
Numerous social activities provide summer associates with opportunities for informal (and often invaluable) internal networking. Visit Gunster on Facebook and on Twitter.
