Summer Associates

Sheehan Phinney generally hires a handful of associate attorneys each year, almost exclusively from our 2L summer associate program. Our screening of potential hires occurs during a rigorous process that involves a careful review of the candidate’s academic record in college and law school, scrutiny of a required legal writing sample, and thorough interviews with every member of our Hiring Committee. There is a regular position of employment available to be earned by every member of each Sheehan Phinney 2L summer associate class and, as such, our summer program features a cooperative and collegial environment that allows summer associates to flourish.

First-Year Students

1Ls are encouraged to apply for a summer internship with Sheehan Phinney through the New Hampshire 1L Diversity Internship Program.  Additional information relating to that program can be found here.

Second-Year Students

2Ls with a superior academic record in college and law school and a serious interest in living and working in New Hampshire or Massachusetts following their graduation from law school are encouraged to submit a cover letter, resume, undergraduate transcript, and law school transcript to our hiring partner by mid-July before the start of their 2L year.

Third-Year Students

Because we generally fill entry-level attorney positions from our summer program, we do not conduct a formal 3L-hiring program. Exceptional 3L candidates may still apply.
