About the Internship:

Our Summer Consultant Program is an intensive 10-week internship that provides rising seniors with an opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, and abilities while making meaningful contributions to the firm.

Under the direction of senior staff, Summer Consultants will have the opportunity to conduct research on various subjects and synthesize facts; analyze data and information; and prepare presentations and reports for internal and external audiences on multiple projects at different stages in the litigation process. Summer Consultants also contribute to the creation, maintenance, and utilization of databases and spreadsheets that further the development of analyses and materials for presentations and reports to clients and internal audiences. At the end of the summer, participants are evaluated for a full-time position upon graduation. The Summer Consultant Program is a great way to begin a career at Bates White as it provides a solid foundation upon which to build when returning after graduation.
