Meet Bailey Langner

"I am amazed at the responsibility that I get as a senior 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 associates experience what it’s like to be a lawyer at King & Spalding by working on challenging matters for real clients. Our summer program is coordinated by a team in each office who work to ensure each summer associate has the right mix of substantive work, training, and social engagement.

We encourage a culture of mentorship and development. Our summer associates receive hands-on training working with our lawyers and are paired with summer advisors who provide guidance on assignments and help the summer associates integrate into the firm. Weekly professional development opportunities include luncheon seminars, attendance at practice group meetings, and off-site client visits.
