Summer Associate Program

Moore & Van Allen’s Summer Associate Program attracts exceptionally talented and motivated law students from all over the country.  For 10 weeks, law students get an exclusive level of exposure to the firm, and the opportunity to work alongside our members and associates, directly with and for our clients.

Through a variety of substantive work, training, mentorship, networking, and social opportunities, our summer associates will get a sense of what it is to be a Moore & Van Allen attorney.


Summer Associates are given work through a distribution system based on availability and interest. Summer Associates are included on deal teams, conference calls, in mediations, and at hearings.

Moore & Van Allen Summer Associates can expect consistent formal and informal feedback from their mentors, supervising attorneys on assignments, and the firm’s Hiring Partners. Summer Associates will have a formal mid-term and final reviews to discuss their performance and experience.


Selected in advance based on students’ practice group interests, summer associates are assigned two mentors: a firm associate and a member. Mentors are a valuable resource to the Summer Associates. Throughout the summer, mentors connect, guide, and teach their mentees throughout the summer and in the years to follow.


Outside of the office, our Summer Associates will have countless opportunities to see what the Queen City has to offer! Our Summer Associate social calendar is packed with cocktails and dinners, cooking classes, sporting events, and cultural activities.
