Family Law Summer Associates Program

McCabe Russell, PA invites rising 2L students to apply for our Summer Associate Program. The Summer Associate Program at McCabe Russell provides a “real-life” introduction to the firm’s family law practice in Howard County, Maryland. Summer associates receive challenging projects on real, ongoing family law matters.

Our summer associates provide legal research, writing, discovery and other substantive support for attorneys. As a summer associate, you will have the opportunity to attend depositions, court appearances, and trials/hearings and interact with clients. You will also receive substantive feedback and mentoring on assignments. One of the benefits of the firm’s small size is that it offers  summer associates regular opportunities to work with and get to know the firm’s attorneys and staff. We commit to ensuring that each summer associate’s experience reflects the diversity of the firm’s work, and that each summer associate leaves the firm with a well-informed, realistic sense of how law is practiced at the firm.

Successful candidates for McCabe Russell, PA’s summer associate program are selected from a pool of applicants based on their outstanding academic records, writing skills, and commitment to the firm’s work in family law. The hiring and interviewing process begins in early September. Applicants should submit a resume, law school transcript or other listing of grades, one or two writing samples, and a list of references to Kierra Wiggins at
