Meet Bailey Langner

"I am amazed at the responsibility that I get as a junior associate. I defend depositions and conduct witness interviews on my own—something I did not expect to do for several years. The lawyers I work with care about my development and look for opportunities for me to expand my legal skills."

Summer Program Experience

As a summer associate, you will get a realistic sense of what you would do as a K&S lawyer. That means challenging work for our clients, interesting pro bono assignments and the opportunity to get to know your colleagues both professionally and personally.

Summer Program Training and Mentoring

You will receive hands-on training working with our lawyers, in addition to substantive training programs throughout the summer, and you will have an advisor who will give guidance on work assignments and help acclimate you to the firm. You will receive real-time feedback during the program.

Diverse first-year students are eligible to apply for our Leadership Council on Legal Diversity 1L Scholars Program. Diverse second-year students are also eligible for our Diversity Fellowship Program, which confers a stipend and a summer associate position in one of our U.S. offices.
