Opportunity to learn from our attorneys – and experience DC. Opportunity to experience the Wiley Way.
Through our robust summer associate assignment database, summer associates get to take on meaningful and substantive projects – similar to our associates.
We want our summer associates to succeed, and we make sure through training, guidance, feedback, and sponsorship that they are cultivated and supported to be the best attorneys they can be.
All work and no play make for an unrealistic expectation of our summer associates. Our summer associates enjoy social events with other attorneys so they can get to know what makes the firm so exceptional – our people.

|“Wiley’s summer program went above and beyond my expectations. The firm carefully balanced my initial interests with the flexibility to explore. I was able to work on multiple substantive matters in other practice areas; I wasn’t pigeonholed. Wiley’s program features actual work with real stakes, and I walked away feeling much more competent in my own abilities. One of my memos was even sent to a client! Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the summer program’s rollout thoroughly impressed me.” |

|“Wiley provided a phenomenal summer associate experience despite the challenges of the new virtual normal. Everyone at Wiley went out of their way to make the summer associates feel welcomed and engaged. The mentorship program was instrumental in allowing me to get the most out of my summer experience. I got to learn from brilliant attorneys, get my hands on fascinating work, develop my career goals, and form strong relationships. I can’t imagine a better environment to begin my legal career.” |

|“The mentorship program was one of the best aspects of Wiley’s summer associate program. My mentors provided me with tremendous guidance, support, and humor during my weeks at Wiley. They facilitated an incredibly welcoming environment and were always available to answer my questions and unpack challenging questions of law. I believe they are a true testament to the supportive culture that exists amongst Wiley lawyers.” |

|“Wiley does an excellent job integrating summer associates into the firm. The summer program is shaped such that a summer associate can explore several of the firm’s practice areas and work with a myriad of attorneys. I’ve tackled challenging research questions, pro bono projects for DC locals, and writing assignments which ultimately made it to a client, a court, or publishing! I can easily reference several points of personal and professional growth I attribute to projects completed or relationships formed during the summer program.” |
