Current Job Openings
At Peter Law Group, summer associates and interns become members of our team, thereby providing students with a real life experience as a practicing attorney. We are committed to ensuring a meaningful training program for those on the way to becoming laywers. With close supervision, summer associates and interns are assigned projects similar to those handled by junior associates and are constructively evaluated by the lawyers they are working with. Because we believe in hands-on learning, summer associates and interns can expect to meet with clients, assist in or attend depositions, participate in and/or attend mediations, arbitrations and negotiations, form corporations and draft transactional documents.
We also encourage students in our program to take advantage of all networking and social events we have access to so that they have the opportunity to build long lasting relationships with business executives and clients.
** Peter law Group is an equal opportunity employer and considers all candidates for employment regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship, age, disability, marital status, military or veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other category protected by law.
