It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the 2017 Summer Associate Program! Our summer associates have been very busy assisting on projects across all practice areas of the firm, and have even been able to join attorneys on special opportunities for client visits and speaking engagements across the country.

We love that our summers like to work hard, but they also like to play hard! Over the past two weeks, the summer associates have joined in on two fun events with other members of the firm.

On June 20, Wiley Rein attorneys and the summer associates attended the U2 concert at FedEx Field, where they enjoyed an amazing performance by Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr. The summer associates sang, danced, and ate along with Wiley Rein partners, associates, and Legal Talent staff.

And on June 28, associates from the firm joined the summer class for a fun-filled evening at the Escape Room gaming venue in Georgetown! Summers and associates broke into three groups, each with their own “game master” who provided them a brief storyline, explained the rules, set the timer, and locked the door. Each group had 45 minutes to find the key and “escape” from their room. Everyone had a great time and one group even finished their mission in record time, earning a spot on the Escape Room leaderboard!

With only four weeks left in the program, we are looking forward to what the rest of the summer has to offer!
