Summers Speak

"The summer program is phenomenal!  I was given the opportunity to work on exciting, substantive projects and to attend fantastic, interesting events.  Everyone at the firm is so welcoming and supportive, and I’m already looking forward to returning next year.  I cannot recommend Cadwalader enough."

- Audrey Curtis, New York University School of Law


"The summer program at Cadwalader combines a perfect amount of work, events, and professional growth.  I was able to take on assignments in a variety of practice groups, grow as a lawyer, and develop friendships and professional contacts that will last well beyond the summer."

- Zack Schrieber, Columbia Law School


"The summer associate program at Cadwalader was a great experience.  The smaller class size allowed summers to get to know each other well, and the social events were all a lot of fun.  All of the projects I worked on were interesting and substantive, and both partners and associates were willing to take the time to explain things in-depth."

- Bryan Gager, Fordham University School of Law


"Throughout my summer associate experience, I was time and again impressed by the truly collegial nature of Cadwalader’s environment.  Within an hour of arriving at my office, the attorneys on my floor reached out to say hello and offer advice.  There was also no shortage of attorneys I could turn to when I wanted to learn more about a specific practice area.  I sincerely appreciate Cadwalader’s summer program for allowing me to get a realistic sense of the work environment while having fun, building relationships, and honing in on the area of law that was most interesting to me."

- Jaime Lee, Cornell Law School


“The Cadwalader summer program was a great way to get exposure to different practice groups and types of work.  The program did a great job of creating a fun summer atmosphere while also giving a good idea of what life will be like as an associate.”

- Jonathan Mandarakas, Fordham University School of Law


"Cadwalader’s summer program definitely exceeded my expectations.  The balance of substantive assignments and creative social events allowed me to get a sense of the firm’s expertise in securitization transactions and also its collegial culture. Because of the program’s open-assignment system, I not only assisted with securitization transactions, but I was also able to explore other practice areas, such as Corporate, Tax and Finance.  I was particularly impressed by the associates’ and partners’ eagerness to teach and mentor the summer associates.  This sense of teamwork throughout the firm allowed me to foster relationships with Cadwalader attorneys, and also interface with reputable clients."

-Chelsea Donenfeld, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law


"The attorneys are incredibly supportive and welcoming, and the mentor program allows you to hit the ground running.  I was invited to sit on a calls with some of the firm’s biggest clients, and directly participate in their work.  The attorneys take an interest in your personal growth and development, and set you up to succeed.   The events were exciting and laid back, and allowed me to explore the best of what New York has to offer."

- Tim Walker, University of Pennsylvania Law School
