We have a limited number of summer legal intern positions for qualified law students each year. Our summer program is a great way to learn about the law and to work in an entrepreneurial, close-knit team environment.

At a mid-size firm like Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, you'll never get lost in a Big Law associate class. Every lawyer here matters and makes great contributions from day one. One of our recent summer interns put it best when she described working here, "I have learned more than I have in a classroom in my short time here at the firm."
