Eight law students have joined Shutts & Bowen for its 2016 Summer Clerkship Program.
The Shutts & Bowen Summer Clerkship Program allows students to choose a practice area that interests them and delve into the different aspects of our legal services. Our summer law clerks are paired with a mentor within the firm to offer insights into the history and culture of Shutts and gain an accurate sense of what it is like to work at a nationally-recognized, top-ranked law firm.
The students will attend client meetings, depositions, court hearings and other proceedings within their various practice groups as well as attend firm-sponsored social events and community improvement projects.
