Comments regarding Hiring The law student who will prosper in Gunster's Summer Associate Program thrives on a significant amount of responsibility, is constructive and creative, and wants to be a lawyer in the truest sense, strategizing with colleagues, working on complex matters, and putting client needs first.

The SA Program is designed for students who have completed two years of law school. The program provides a realistic view of practicing law in a large statewide firm environment. SAs are given a wide variety of legal work and are encouraged to develop relationships with lawyers and staff at all levels throughout the firm's offices. SAs are exposed to a number of practical legal experiences including: court and administrative proceedings, client conferences, negotiations, closings, depositions, hearings, and trials.

Mentoring is an integral part of the SA program, and SAs are assigned mentors & advisors for guidance and support.
