The Summer Associate Program at Macfarlane Ferguson & McMullen is designed to expose our summer associates to all aspects of our law firm, the legal profession, and the Tampa Bay area. While ensuring that our summer associates perform assignments for all of our practice groups, summer associates are allowed and encouraged to actively participate in the areas of law that are of particular interest to them. Working closely with our diverse and experienced attorneys, our summer associates take part in drafting pleadings and other legal documents, as well as trial preparations, client conferences, mediations, transactional closings, and numerous other legal activities. Our program is also designed to provide extensive mentoring to our summer associates. Through both formal and informal feedback, our attorneys take an active interest in the professional development of our summer associates.

All applications for OCR are via Symplicity and the “OCR” tab. Employers participating in Session K can be viewed in the Fall 2015 OCR Participating Employer Guide (located in the Symplicity Document Library), which also provides detailed information on the application materials required by each employer. Step-by-step instructions for how to apply to OCR opportunities via Symplicity are available in the Fall 2015 OCR Instructions (located in the Symplicity Document Library). Applicants can apply, and modify applications, until the deadline, as no candidate materials are sent to an employer until after the close of the application period.

Stetson Law and this Career Development staff takes enormous pride in the fact that we consistently receive positive feedback from employers on our candidates’ preparedness. Accordingly:

(1) Each document submitted for an OCR opportunity will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the proper formatting standards. If a candidate submits documents in an improper format, the candidate’s materials will not be given to the employer.

(2) Each candidate must submit all documents requested by the employer, and if all documents are not submitted, the candidate’s materials will not be given to the employer.
