Bodman Summer Associate Alumni Testimonials

In Their Own Words
Bodman is a named 2015 Detroit Free Press Top Workplace with smart, hard working people!

Bodman has been listed as a Detroit Free Press Top Workplace since 2010.

We feel that the best spokespersons for our summer program are our alumni, many of whom are members of our current legal staff. Here are comments from some of our alumni about their experiences in Bodman’s summer program.

"Bodman’s program excels at doing exactly what summer associate programs are meant to do: providing law school students with a glimpse of associate life at a law firm. The assignments are challenging and present opportunities to learn accountability and time management.  The firm takes great efforts to expose summer associates to all practice areas available through presentations and diverse assignments. Moreover, the attorneys and staff truly enjoy welcoming the summer associates to the city of Detroit and the Bodman workplace each year. When I returned to Bodman after graduation, I had a smooth transition into life as a full-time associate because I already knew the work ethic that was expected, the types of assignments that I would encounter, and the friendly faces at the firm."

Summer Associate Class of 2011

“My experience as a Bodman Summer Associate offered me exposure to a wide variety of assignments and practice areas. These assignments were accompanied by responsive, helpful partners who were always willing to take the time to discuss the legal issues and offer guidance when needed. More importantly, as a Summer Associate, I felt a part of the team and was able to get a realistic glimpse into what it would ultimately be like as a full-time associate at the Firm.”

"Bodman’s summer associate program gave me exactly what I was looking for, a positive working environment and an accurate representation of associate life in a successful Detroit law firm.  Bodman’s members and associates made my summer experience enjoyable and the real client work made me feel like a part of the team.  The relationships and tools I developed as a summer associate helped me feel prepared to make the transition from student to full time associate."

“Bodman’s summer associate program provides a great opportunity to experience life as a lawyer in an environment that is educational, professional and collegial.”
Andrew J. Schuster
Troy Office 
Summer Associate Class of 2007

“My summer at Bodman helped me to see law in the real world, outside of what I have learned in law school. Bodman provides a wide-range of assignments across the firm’s many practice areas and summer associates benefited from the opportunity to explore these. During my summer at Bodman, I also formed a bond with my fellow summer associates and enjoyed the guidance and kindness of the firm’s attorneys.”
