In order to take advantage of the full experience of learning about Rogers & Hardin and our lawyers, we encourage social interaction between our Attorneys and Summer Associates both inside and outside the office. Throughout the summer we plan many events, such as welcome breakfasts, softball games, happy hours, and monthly practice lunches that everyone is encouraged to attend. We also hold many smaller events that provide a more personal setting to interact one-on-one with partners and/or associates and with small groups of attorneys. These events may include Chastain concerts, Braves games, small group dinners held around the city, shows at the Fox Theatre, wine tastings, rock climbing outings, and plays at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival. Summer Associates have the opportunity to participate in events held around the city to learn more about the legal community, including but not limited to, ServiceJuris, the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta, Federal Bar Association, and other organizations and events which may vary from year-to-year.
We believe that our “social and networking program” provides the best way for our Summer Associates to get to know the attorneys with whom they will work on a daily basis and to discover what makes Atlanta a great place to live and work.
“My summer experience included many fabulous events. For instance, I played golf, attended Shakespeare plays, watched Braves games, dined at Atlanta's best restaurants, and much more. All of this combined for an unforgettable summer experience that makes me eager to return."
