"You hear firms boasting of real work to prospective summer associates. But what summer associates seek are real opportunities to showcase our abilities on serious, active matters. In my first week at Schiff Hardin, I researched and prepared a substantive memo on fiduciary claims. With my research, the partner advised the client to pursue a countersuit. And the following week, I drafted the ten-count complaint. Upon receiving my draft, the partner made the time to provide me page-by-page feedback. Schiff Hardin offered me not just real work, but real opportunities."
