Most new associates to the firm come to us through participation in our Summer Clerkship Program. The goal of this program is to provide clerks with an accurate picture of the type of work we do, and the expectations and opportunities that come with being an associate at McDowell Knight. We attempt to familiarize our clerks with all areas of the firm’s practice and the unique benefits presented by our location. Situated on Mobile Bay on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, our city is a gateway to numerous recreational activities, including excellent golfing, hunting and fishing, and the relaxing beaches of Alabama and Florida.
The Summer Clerkship Program includes a number of social and recreational events designed to acquaint summer clerks with our lawyers and their families. Typical outings include golf, tennis, fishing and beach trips. Our lawyers also entertain clerks in their homes. Additionally, summer clerks develop their skills by working closely with McDowell Knight lawyers on ongoing matters, performing legal research and writing, and attending depositions, hearings and trials.
First-year students participating in our 2013 summer program will be paid $1,100.00 per week, and second-year law students will be paid $1,300.00 per week.
