Immediate, candid and continuing feedback is an integral part of the summer program experience. Summer associates are evaluated on each project by the attorneys with whom they are working. In addition to written evaluations, attorneys are encouraged to give oral feedback directly to summer associates following the completion of an assignment. Summer associates receive a formal evaluation during the summer, conducted by a key summer program partner.
In the New York office, summer associates are notified of offer decisions at the conclusion of the program. Offers are made with consideration given to the summer associate's area(s) of preference and our anticipated staffing needs.
In the Los Angeles office, summer associates are notified of an offer before they leave at the end of the summer or, as promptly as possible thereafter. When a summer associate is given an offer to work at Stroock and he or she has expressed interest in joining a particular practice group, we do our best to accommodate those requests when making departmental assignments prior to the arrival of those new, entry-level associates the following Fall.
