Summer Associate Spotlight
"McKenna Long & Aldridge provided a summer experience enriching beyond expectations. I worked on substantive, meaningful projects and built strong relationships with numerous members of the MLA team. Partners welcomed summer associates to sit in on important meetings, both internal and client-oriented, and we were given an insightful and genuine sense of what it is like to work at the firm. I truly felt the great team at MLA invested in my success and growth, not only during the summer but beyond, and I look forward to rejoining MLA."
