2025 2L Summer Associate

work with us

2025 2L Summer Associate

Bodman is now recruiting for our 2025 Summer Associate Program. We have positions available in metro Detroit and Grand Rapids.

About the Opportunity

Bodman’s Summer Associate Program provides talented law students with the opportunity to experience life as an associate at one of Michigan’s leading firms.

As a summer associate, you will work on actual client matters across a variety of practice groups that associates would otherwise handle. We also prioritize your professional development by hosting educational, training, and social opportunities throughout the summer. Each summer associate receives formal feedback through a mid-summer and end-of-summer review and is assigned an associate and partner mentor with whom they meet regularly.

We have had unparalleled success in the percentage of summer associates who receive and accept offers of full-time, post-graduation employment. Many of our attorneys – from junior associates to senior partners – joined Bodman as summer associates.

Our ideal candidate combines initiative, strong work ethic, solid writing skills, superior client service, and good judgment. We also look for people who share our core values of integrity, client service, collaboration, diversity, stewardship, and stability.

The Summer Associate Program is ten weeks long. Summer associates spend the majority of their time in the Firm’s Detroit office; however, each summer associate will spend one to two weeks in our Troy and Ann Arbor offices. For those students interested in working in Grand Rapids after graduation, we also offer the opportunity to work out of the Firm’s Grand Rapids office for the summer.

Hiring Criteria:

  • Excellent character
  • Strong research, writing, and analytical skills
  • Law journal and/or moot court experience preferred
  • Students entering their second year of law school (2L; 2026 graduates)

Compensation: 2025 Summer Associates will be paid at a semi-monthly rate of $7,083.33.

How to Apply

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, writing sample, and law school transcript to recruiting@bodmanlaw.com. Please use the subject line “2025 Summer Associate” in your email.
