Messner Reeves Welcomes 2023 Colorado Summer Associates

Messner Reeves welcomes our 5 Summer Associates as part of our annual participation in the Colorado Pledge to Diversity Program.

While most law firms provide internships only to second-year law students, the Pledge to Diversity Program affords first-year law students of diverse racial, gender and ethnic identifications the unique opportunity to participate in a paid summer clerkship with Messner Reeves.

What sets our Summer Program apart from other firms?

Messner Reeves provides an unforgettable, 10-week immersion into the day-to-day operations of a busy, full-service law firm. Our Summer Associates will be able to showcase their abilities and develop their potential as they take on projects from various practice  areas, providing real-life exposure to an area of law they wish to pursue.

Assigned mentors help our Summer Associates  navigate the complexities of the practice of law, with the ultimate goal of fostering their professional development. The Messner Reeves Summer Program encourages the associates to “jump in feet first,” while providing the support and encouragement from Attorneys and staff.
