Weil was recognized as 2023’s number-one law firm for summer associate satisfaction, according to Law360’s annual Summer Associates Survey.
Weil summer associates noted the fun aspect of the program while also highlighting the Firm’s unique mentorship offerings. Jessica Falk, Co-Head of Weil’s Summer Associate Program, noted that summer associates particularly enjoyed the Firm's shadowing assignments, “where they got staffed on a deal or on litigation and were subsequently invited to all of its related calls, hearings or depositions.”
"One thing we do very well is strike a good balance between the social and the substantive," said Justin D. Lee, Co-Head of Weil’s Summer Associate Program. "Other firms may err more towards the social or towards work, work, work, but I think we try to give people an accurate impression of what it's like to be at Weil."
Law360 surveyed summer associates between June 14 and July 17, receiving 815 responses from 1Ls, 2Ls and 3Ls, as well as part-time and evening students. Participants were required to identify the organizations where they were completing their summer associate programs.
