Follow Along With Our Summer Clerks
Welcome 2018 Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell Summer Associates!
We are so pleased to have you working with us for the next ten weeks. Our goal is to expose you to virtually every aspect of being a trial attorney. Our program is designed so that you will be attending presentations that will cover everything from handling written discovery, preparing and taking expert testimony to opening and closing statements. You will then participate in practical workshops and apply the knowledge you just gained. All the while, you will be handling billable client work and getting to know your RKC colleagues.
Then the most exciting part of the program takes place – the Mock Trial. You will be placed into teams and given a case packet that contains the fact pattern, exhibits, deposition transcripts and more. Each team will prepare its case under the guidance of RKC attorney coaches, and then you will present to a panel of judges comprised of RKC partners. Each team will participate in two trials, once as plaintiff counsel and the second as defense. You will be applying everything you learned in the workshops. Be prepared to give opening and closing statements, argue motions in limine and question witnesses.
So get ready for a whole lot of experience and fun. We hope you have a remarkable summer with RKC!
