Goodman McGuffey’s Atlanta office wrapped up this year’s Summer Clerk Program today. This was certainly a strange summer for clerkship and was not what it ordinarily would have been, due to the circumstances and many effects of COVID-19. However, we were still able to provide legal experience and comprehensive assignments to our fantastic 2020 Summer Clerk, Milosz Alberski.
The Summer Clerk Program at Goodman McGuffey allows law students to be exposed to all aspects of the firm’s practice and our experienced attorney’s across various practice groups and offices. Summer clerks are assigned comprehensive assignments ranging from legal research to drafting and preparing legal briefs, correspondence, and other pleadings. We also strive to provide our summer clerks with firsthand experience to work alongside our attorneys.
“My summer at Goodman McGuffey was a great learning experience. It is not very common for a 1L student to work at a civil litigation law firm, drafting briefs, motions or deposition summaries for clients and actively participating in depositions, and mediations, but I got to do just that and so much more. I gained a substantial amount of experience and expanded my understanding of tort law. I was able to witness Goodman McGuffey successfully handle the unusual circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and I am so glad I was able to be a part of this amazing team.”
We wanted to thank you for all your hard work and assistance on many projects during your time with us. Even though we were not able to provide the usual firm outings that are a part of our Summer Clerk Program, we nevertheless hope you enjoyed your time with us and wish you nothing but absolute success in your future.
