Cadwalader’s summer associate program is drawing rave reviews.
According to The American Lawyer’s just-released annual Summer Associates Survey, the firm’s program ranked No. 10 among 92 firms – a significant step up from the firm’s No. 32 ranking a year ago. Cadwalader also ranked No. 14 among 54 firms in New York. Roughly 3,900 second- and third-year law school students participated in the survey, ranking firms on a number of factors, including type of work, diversity, partner interaction and more.
“We’re delighted that our summers had such a positive experience,” said Paul Mourning, a Cadwalader partner in New York and co-head of recruitment. “I give tremendous credit to our outstanding summer class, each of whom arrived with great enthusiasm and looked for ways to both contribute to and learn about the firm. But I also need to credit our partners, other lawyers and staff for going above and beyond to make this a meaningful two months for our summers.”
Added Charlotte partner Anne Tompkins, co-head of recruitment, “Special thanks to our recruiting team, which has been invaluable in helping us bring in exceptional summer classes and in creating a dynamic and engaging summer program.”
