36 Law Students Join 2007 Summer Program

Each year, Faegre & Benson LLP welcomes a group of law students to join the firm as summer associates. The Summer Program gives them hands-on experience working on challenging projects with the firm's lawyers and clients.

The firm strives to recruit a diverse group of students with the potential to become both great lawyers and great additions to our team. That means recruits who not only have proven outstanding academic performance, but who also demonstrate qualities such as collegiality, innovation, strategic thinking, communication skills and maturity.

"The Summer Program is always an exciting time here at Faegre & Benson," said James R. Steffen, chair of the firm's Legal Personnel Committee. "Our summer associates bring fresh energy and insight to our firm, and we enjoy building personal and professional relationships with these bright and talented individuals."

On average, 90 percent of students accepted to the Summer Program receive offers to join the firm as associates after completing law school. About 90 percent of those receiving offers decide to join the firm.
