Each year, Swier Law Firm recruits a talented summer associate class for our Avon, Corsica, Sioux Falls, and Winner offices. Our program is designed to give law students an idea of what it is like to work at Swier Law Firm -- our attorneys and staff, work, values and culture.
Summer associates are chosen based on academic credentials, experience, and interviews. The process typically begins with an on-campus interview followed by interviews at the firm.
In 2015, the law firm is excited to host 2 summer associates.
