Barclay Damon’s summer associate positions offer real-world experience in a fast-paced environment. Participants work with attorneys and other professionals on active client matters and participate in meaningful training and professional networking.

Our pioneering Diversity 1L Summer Associate Program offers paid internships in our Albany, Buffalo, and Syracuse offices to first-year law students from historically underrepresented groups within the legal profession. Our 2L Summer Associate Program features positions in our Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse offices.

We strive to extend job offers to 2L summer associate participants who demonstrate outstanding technical abilities, creative problem-solving skills, and commitment to client service.

Diversity &Inclusion

From our award-winning pro bono program and our celebrated Women’s Forum to our Diversity Leadership Teams and our innovative Diversity 1L Summer Associate Program, we work to create a supportive firm culture where every individual is respected and has the opportunity to excel. We also work to support diversity and inclusion within the legal profession and in the communities we serve.

Barclay Damon's Women's Forum provides a platform for women to encourage, mentor, and champion each other in areas such as leadership development, client development, professional development, and marketing.
