Summer Clerkship Program
Our summer program is designed to give law students first-hand experience in the legal profession and a feel for what it's like to be an associate at our firm. Attorneys from all sections within the firm turn in clerk assignments which are then randomly distributed to the clerks as needed. This assures that each clerk will have a wide exposure to many different types of legal problems, and that the clerks work with and get to know as many attorneys as possible.
Clerking for Cotton, Bledsoe, Tighe and Dawson will also give you experience in other areas of the legal profession as well. As a clerk, you will be given the opportunity to attend business meetings, hearings, depositions, and visit off-site locations that may be pertinent to a particular case. This is a great experience and gives you a chance to see and assist our lawyers when they are in action.
The firm also believes that social activities are important in getting to know one another and in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To promote this belief, the firm organizes several social events throughout the summer. Some of these events include barbeques, golf tournaments, an oil rig tour and inspection, and even skeet shooting. We also believe in the importance of family and encourage you to bring them along to these events as well.
On Campus Interview Schedule
Cotton, Bledsoe, Tighe & Dawson generally visits several schools each year. During these visits, our representatives conduct interviews with students and discuss the possibility of a clerkship with the firm. In order to receive an interview, one must be scheduled prior to our visit to your campus.
We also accept applicants from all accredited law schools.
