The summer program at Wyche has two goals: to introduce law students to the real-world practice of law, and to begin to build relationships with young lawyers who we hope will become our colleagues. To achieve these ends, we interweave genuine legal work with relaxed social events that emphasize getting to know Greenville and one another.
The summer program reflects the culture of the firm. We work hard and smart, we like where we live and we take advantage of the wealth of recreation and culture that is available to us. And, of great importance, we like and respect each other.
Collegiality is one of the very special aspects of our firm. We prize one another’s company, and our lawyers have a variety of interests. During the summer, we try to share this unity and diversity with our summer associates, and show off the ambience of our city.
Greenville is surrounded by beautiful mountains with spectacular rivers and waterfalls. We offer hikes and picnics in the mountains, as well as whitewater rafting and canoeing. There is always a tennis game available at the end of the day or an afternoon of golf at one of the many courses in the area. Traditionally, we schedule an afternoon of water skiing, swimming or boating on one of the many lakes, followed by a casual dinner.
We also host an evening at the Greenville Drive baseball stadium to watch the Boston Red Sox Single A affiliate team play. In addition to lots of outdoor events, there are excellent dining and theatre evenings at the Peace Center for the Performing Arts or local music and cabaret clubs. Downtown Greenville hosts a variety of evening concerts that are within walking distance of the office and the Bon Secours Wellness Arena books major concert tours and sporting events. A tour of the Greenville County Art Museum is scheduled every year.
