Assignments and Evaluations

We engage our summer associates and expose them to the realistic and billable work of a Thompson Hine associate. In Cleveland, summer associates work in a “pool” and have the opportunity to receive work from multiple practice groups, whereas summer associates in the Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati offices each receive work from a specific practice group. It is expected that each summer associate get work on their own from assigning attorneys. Because giving back is important at Thompson Hine, each summer associate also receives the opportunity to work on meaningful pro bono cases in addition to billable work.

To advance our summer associates’ writing skills, each is assigned a writing coach, a Thompson Hine partner or senior associate who provides mentorship and works with the summer associate throughout the summer.

Assigning attorneys provide each summer associate with informal feedback, both in-person and written, on each substantive work assignment. In addition, summer associates receive a formal mid-summer evaluation.
