For Nick Gravante and Natasha Harrison, managing partners at Boies Schiller Flexner, the decision to keep the firm’s summer associate program was a quick one. They said Wednesday that after the issue was raised internally, the firm’s leaders mailed its roughly 28 summer associates a letter assuring them that the program would go on.

A goal of the summer program is to give rising lawyers “a real dose of reality,” Gravante said, and for now that includes dealing with a pandemic. “If we have to work at home because that’s where lawyers are working when summer associates start arriving in mid-May, then we will incorporate the summers into our work-from-home routine.”
