19 Law Students Join Koley Jessen for Summer Program


Koley Jessen is pleased to welcome 19 talented law school students, representing 10 different law schools, for a 12-week summer program brimming with learning, professional development, and camaraderie. Expanding from 14 summer associates in 2020 to 19 in 2021, the firm once again is excited to welcome its largest class of law school students ever to participate in its Summer Associate Program.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to provide meaningful experience to these talented students as they progress towards their J.D. and to showcase all that Omaha has to offer to young professionals” said David Goeschel, Recruiting Committee Chairperson. “Our recruiting process is rigorous and we interviewed law students from across the country in order to narrow the field to this exceptional class.”

Koley Jessen’s Summer Associate Program provides law students the opportunity to work with attorneys on ongoing client matters across the firm’s areas of practice. The program is comprised of three four-week rotations through each of the firm’s major departments and provides students realistic insight into the private practice of law. By summer’s end, they will have experienced such things as attending court hearings, trials, depositions, the closing of a transaction, and client meetings in addition to working on legal research and writing projects. Each student will be matched up with a mentor, who will provide tailored guidance and feedback throughout the program. This mentorship alongside their hands on experience will help lay the groundwork for their legal career. Students will also have a chance to attend social activities hosted by the firm to network and develop relationships.
