Carlton Fields is pleased to welcome its 2018 Summer Associate Class. Carlton-Fields-Summer-Associates-2018.jpg

The firm’s Summer Associate Program provides its class with opportunities to serve business clients in key industries, sharpen their real world legal skills, and cultivate purposeful relationships with members of the firm and clients.

Summer associates will participate in all aspects of the firm’s practices, whether in the office, at a client meeting, or in the courtroom.

Class members can also become involved in the firm’s pro bono initiatives through engaging with local legal aid societies and taking part in Bar, civic, and community-oriented activities.

This year, five distinguished law students from three law schools will spend the summer in the firm’s Miami and Tampa offices, where they will continue their legal education and training, learn about practice areas and industry groups of interest, and work with designated mentors and other firm attorneys on meaningful assignments.
