HOUSTONBracewell’s summer associate program was ranked among the top three programs in the United States in Vault’s 2024 Summer Associate Guide. The firm was nationally ranked:

  • #3 for best overall summer program
  • #2 for best summer program for attorney interactions
  • #2 for best summer program for social experiences
  • #6 for best summer program for career development

Vault’s 2024 rankings are based on the feedback provided on its annual associate survey. Junior associates who participated in their current firm’s summer associate program were asked to rate their experience on a scale of 1 to 10 in six different categories. From those ratings, Vault ranked the best summer programs in three areas: attorney interactions (based on associates’ scores for meaningful interactions with firm attorneys), career development (based on associates’ scores for substantive assignments, training and mentoring, and effective preparation for life as an associate) and social experiences (based on associates’ scores for the quality of events and satisfaction with firm-sponsored social opportunities and social interactions). The overall best summer associate program ranking reflects the average of all six individual ratings.
