Turn Experience into a Practice

Trucker Huss compensates summer associates on a basis that is competitive with our peer law firms. Summer associates are expected to work for a minimum of six weeks.

Work with attorneys who are not only respected experts in the field, but who are also sincerely interested in helping you make the most of your experience.

But don't take our word for it...

I had a wonderful summer at Trucker Huss. Everyone in the office is great – very welcoming and encouraging. The attorneys were patient when it came to explaining complex legal issues, and extremely helpful in guiding me through my assignments. The assignments ranged in variety and were never repetitive, which I appreciated. I learned a great deal about what it means to practice law in the field of employee benefits, as well as what it means to be part of a team of truly kind and respectful professionals. I would recommend the experience to anyone, whether you are familiar with ERISA or not.
Throughout my summer at Trucker Huss, I was exposed to the many different facets of ERISA work, from advising clients on newly published health care regulations to preparing for litigation. By end of the summer, I was eager to continue building a career practicing ERISA. My experience of working at Trucker Huss has been exactly what I was looking for: the opportunity to work on challenging, dynamic projects that are typically found in big firms combined with the collegial culture of a smaller firm.
