Summer associates

The Kennedys CMK Summer Associate Program, designed primarily for second-year students, is an integral part of our associate hiring program. Summer associates get a realistic view of life as an attorney at our firm. They are exposed to a wide variety of work with as many of our lawyers as possible.

We do not limit summer associates to basic tasks like performing research or writing memos. Our summer associates meet with clients, draft pleadings and discovery responses, and accompany our attorneys to meetings, depositions, and court appearances. We also provide feedback and mentoring, as well as in-house seminars on a variety of topics. In short, we give summer associates a realistic view of what it’s like to practice law in our firm, so they, and we, can make an informed decision about continuing a working relationship after graduation.

Staff positions

Kennedys CMK employs the most qualified personnel at every level. We accomplish that by recruiting a capable, professional and diversified staff. To attract and retain the best talent, we offer competitive salaries, an excellent benefits package and a unique working environment in which everyone is valued, empowered and part of a team.

Training and development

At Kennedys CMK, we place a high priority on training and supervision. From the first day of an attorney's employment, we emphasize the importance of continually developing skills, refining professionalism and giving back to the community. Through hands-on, direct client service and continual legal education, we ensure that our attorneys never stop developing professionally. With this in mind, we offer in-house training programs and continuing legal education for all our lawyers.

We also encourage our people to stay abreast of changes in laws, statutes, regulations and codes in their areas of practice, and our lawyers regularly participate in Continuing Education Programs (CLE), professional seminars and other substantive training.
