Summer Associate Program
Summer Associate Program
Every year, DBL visits a number of law schools and accepts resumes to help identify suitable candidates for our Summer Associate Program.

Ryan M. McLane, Partner at DBL Law and former Summer Associate
Law school does a fine job instructing students in the law and how to think like a lawyer. But, the practice of law must be learned through professional experience and insightful mentoring. DBL provided me both of these key ingredients to professional development during my time as a Summer Associate. The lawyers at DBL made a point to involve me in hearings, client meetings, depositions and a variety of professional and social events. But perhaps most importantly, I received truly thoughtful mentoring about how to practice law with integrity, responsibility and a dedication to excellence.
Nicholas C. Birkenhauer, Partner at DBL Law and former Summer Associate
My summer associate experience at DBL helped prepare me for the realities of practicing law. From day one, I assisted with meaningful legal research and document drafting projects. My input had a real bearing on our clients’ cases and I worked side-by-side with DBL attorneys in achieving positive outcomes for our clients. Once I began practicing, my experience as a summer associate allowed me to hit the ground running, proving that selecting the DBL summer associate program was one of the best career decisions I ever made.
