Summer Associates

As a law student, you are faced with many choices when deciding what path your career may take. You need to consider the type of practice that interests you as well as the culture and atmosphere of the organization where you want to work.

Law students who demonstrate high academic achievement, participate in law school and extra-curricular activities and show an interest in the community are given the opportunity to experience a well-rounded summer at Bass, Berry & Sims. Our program is designed to provide law students with a realistic picture of life as an associate and to assess a candidate's ability to contribute to our firm. The relationships you build and the challenging opportunities you discover over the summer will continue when you begin a legal career with us.

As one of the leading firms in the Southeast, it is important that we create and maintain a talented and diverse body of attorneys within our offices. To this end, we have devoted substantial recruitment efforts to attracting and retaining those attorneys who can bring to our team approach a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences.

In 2018, our Memphis and Nashville offices will sponsor a summer associate program for second-year law students. We offer a second-half only program that is scheduled to run from June 25 through August 3. Additionally, we will hire first-year law students to participate in our program in the Nashville office.
