We have drafted four all-star future lawyers to join us for our SLG Summer Leadership and Mentorship (SLAM) internship. Three of our interns entered week two of their summers and have recapped their experiences and lessons learned:
Oklahoma City University School of Law ’22
Texas A&M University ’19
This week, I was able to assist several associates in their preparation for depositions and reply briefs. I was tasked with working on discovery assignments and drafting multiple motions. SLG has provided me with experience that I believe no other internship can offer. The associates are extremely willing to teach us and spend time instilling their knowledge and wisdom. Every single person has gone above and beyond to help us, and I believe that is a reflection on Mrs. Amy. I am so excited to spend more time here this summer!
UNT Dallas College of Law ’23
UNT Dallas ’20
This week, I was tasked with many assignments such as drafting deposition summaries and a motion for summary judgment, writing a collaboration article with the other SLAM interns, and conducting legal research for the associates. I am thrilled to say that I had the opportunity to attend and sit in on a virtual deposition. I have truly enjoyed meeting all the attorneys throughout SLG. It is really an honor to learn and grow from individuals that have been in the position I am in today.

This week, I learned the importance of being able to work under a time crunch. I have always loved taking my time to complete an assignment, but I have quickly realized that attorneys do not have this privilege. An attorney is expected to produce great work within a reasonable amount of time, which is a skill that develops with practice and hard work. I really appreciate SLG for providing me with the tools to develop this skill and the opportunity to practice, practice, practice!
