Why spend the summer at Wyche?
The purpose of our summer program is to introduce law students to the real-world practice of law and to build relationships with individuals who will, we hope, become our colleagues. We also hope to introduce our summer associates to all that living in Greenville—a vibrant, growing community—has to offer.
What are our hiring criteria?
We are looking for exceptional lawyers, so we begin by looking for exceptional law students. Our hiring criteria include high academic standing, membership on law reviews or other significant journals, honor society memberships, judicial clerkships, and a demonstration of vitality and enthusiasm for extracurricular interests.
Where does Wyche recruit?
We participate in the official on-campus interview programs at Duke University, Harvard University, University of South Carolina, University of Virginia and Yale University, and we enthusiastically accept résumés from law students at other law schools. Please email a resume, writing sample, cover letter and transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered for our summer associate program. You can also submit your application here.
What types of assignments can summer associates expect?
Wyche summer associates work on real matters for real clients. Our summer associates page provides in-depth information.
When is the summer associate program?
The Wyche summer program runs from July through August, and we ask associates to spend a minimum of four weeks with us. We created this schedule to allow associates to split their summers between two legal jobs, which we encourage for reasons detailed on our summer associates page.
When are offers for participation in the summer associate program extended?
Offers for second- and third-year law students are extended throughout the fall semester on a rolling basis but generally after we have interviewed most of the students we expect to have visit us. Offers for first-year law students are extended throughout the spring semester in a similar manner.
How many law students participate in the summer associate program?
We typically host four to eight law students in our summer associate program. Keeping our summer associate program small allows us to get to know all summer associates and ensure that they are fully engaged in the firm's practice and culture.
