Welcome Law Students

Every summer, Burr & Forman hires law students at the end of their first and second years of law school to clerk in our offices across the Southeast. The summer law clerk program in most offices begins mid-May and runs through the end of June; the Florida summer law clerk programs are ten weeks ending in July. Our summer law clerk program is an excellent opportunity for law students to experience Burr & Forman's culture. Each summer law clerk is assigned a partner and associate mentor for the summer program. These mentors offer instruction and feedback on assignments as well as encourage each summer law clerk to be successful and productive. A wide-range of assignments provide exposure to different practice areas; clerks may be invited to interact with clients or attend a trial, a closing, or a deposition. Our goal is to further each summer law clerk's legal career by delivering a valuable learning experience to supplement their law school studies.

Cultivating Professional Networks

Burr & Forman balances a fulfilling work environment with a number of planned social and professional networking events such as volunteering for local charities, baseball games, bowling, canoe trips, hockey games, family cookouts, and more. Law students in our summer law clerk program cultivate their professional networks while developing enduring friendships that last throughout their careers.

We will begin accepting 1L applications for Summer 2024 in January.

For more information or to apply to our summer law clerk program, please send your resume, cover letter, and transcript to Annie Kate Ingle.
