Each summer associate has a partner and an associate who act as his or her "siblings" throughout the summer. The "sibling's" main focus is to help familiarize the summer associates with the firm and to be a resource for any questions or concerns on work assignments, life at the firm or what it is like to be a lawyer.
In addition to the "sibling" program, other lawyers from throughout the firm provide mentoring during the summer. In Hartford, summer associates rotate office space during the program. This furthers the opportunity to establish additional informal mentoring relationships.
