Providing opportunities to the next generation of lawyers
Bob Bennett & Associates is committed to professionals — including the professionals of tomorrow. Our firm strives to provide opportunities for students and recent graduates to gain real world experience in the practice of law. We strive to give our interns a fulfilling experience during which they can learn and grow as professionals. Moreover, we are proud to draw on our talented and dedicated interns as a resource that helps us remain up to date with the latest trends in legal education and ethics.
Opportunities for students and recent graduates
Breaking into the legal profession has never been tougher. Firms expect their new associates to hit the ground running — assigning substantial caseloads almost immediately with little time for practical training. But any current practitioner will tell you that what you learn in law school represents only a small percentage of the knowledge you need to be successful. Practical experience is a must to secure a good job or even go into private practice.
While our internships, externships, and clerkships are currently unpaid, we offer future legal professionals the chance to shadow an attorney with nearly 40 years of experience and to meet and interact with potential clients, attorneys, politicians, administrators, academicians and state and federal jurists. Our interns agree that the connections and experience they gained at Bob Bennett & Associates were indispensable to their future success.
Willkommen: Opportunities for foreign students
In addition to the opportunities we offer to students in Texas, Bob Bennett & Associates is proud to provide a unique experience to foreign students who want to understand the American legal system. In cooperation with the University of Münster in Germany, we offer students the chance to travel to America, enjoy what the great state of Texas has to offer and to interact with American students as well as members of our local legal community.
