What Firms Want to See When Summers Come to the Office


Holland & Knight Co-Hiring Partner Megan Schmid was featured in a Law360 article discussing what law firms expect from their summer associates. In the article, Ms. Schmid emphasizes that instead of perfection, firms look for a willingness to learn.
