2019 1L Diversity Summer Program

Former Summer Associate Quotes

  • “Overall, the training was excellent, and I appreciated that we were given such substantive and quality training as part of the summer program – this was an important consideration in my decision-making process to accept an offer.”
  • “I liked the balance that Ropes & Gray strikes between work and social events. The social events are really fun, but I also liked doing some substantive assignments so that I can start assessing which practice groups interest me.”

Diversity has long been an essential part of Ropes & Gray’s firm identity. We see individual differences in race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, family structure or economic status as an asset that enhances the quality of life for each of us and strengthens what we can accomplish together. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion enriches firm life, enhances our ability to attract and retain talent, deepens our understanding of our growing roster of clients worldwide, and reinforces our own core values of excellence, fairness, collaboration and collegiality.
