At Morgan Lewis, our greatest strength is the company we keep. If you want to be an exceptional lawyer with superior legal skills, a collaborative spirit, and a commitment to the advancement of the legal profession, we invite you to learn more about Morgan Lewis, where working in collaboration is part of our DNA.

Our talented lawyers know that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That supporting and appreciating individuals leads to a team’s success. That clients value insight, empathy, and trustworthiness as much as legal advice. That’s why we are motivated every day to harness our collective power to deliver exceptional service to our clients around the globe.

An Unparalled Summer

We offer an innovative work experience for second-year law students – one that combines a rich summer experience with hands-on, in-depth work at Morgan Lewis, targeted professional development and training, and then in-house training at a public interest or community-based organization.

Our Summer Associate Program starts with an experiential get-together where firm leaders and all summer associates from across the US gather for a multiday orientation and bonding program.

Our kickoffs have happened everywhere from the beach in Santa Monica, where we went barefoot and had a beach olympics, to major urban centers, where we planted trees for the community. Wherever we gather, the goal remains the same: to introduce our summer associates to the firm, to our summer program, to our unique firm culture, and to our enthusiasm for working together.

A cornerstone of each program is our Pro Bono Clinic. Our summer associates’ first assignment is meeting with and counseling real clients. Most recently, we partnered with The Lawyers Clearinghouse in Boston.  Teams of Summer Associates alongside Partners and Associates from various offices advised 20 Massachusetts non-profit organizations on Written Information Security Programs. 

Professional Development a Priority

From our newest lawyers to our senior associates, Morgan Lewis supports wrap-around professional development through a series of academies targeted for each stage of an associate’s career. Our customized trainings include the Summer Academy, the New Lawyer Academy, the Mid-Level Associate Academy, and the Senior Associate Academy. These programs give associates a valuable and personal opportunity to learn best business development and leadership practices from Morgan Lewis partners and senior management, who enjoy the experience as much as the associates.

Support for Work-Life Balance

In 2017 Morgan Lewis launched its Remote Working Program to put into place flexible work options for U.S. and UK associates. The program, in which dozens of lawyers are enrolled, allows associates with two or more years at the firm to work remotely up to two days a week. Participants receive in-home office setups that include dual monitors, headsets, and docking stations.
