RE: Summer Associate Position
Dear Mr. Smith,
I am writing to express my interest in a summer associate position at Reed Jones & Jacobs LLP. I am
currently entering my second year of study at Pace University School of Law. Additionally, I am a member
of PACE LAW REVIEW and participant in the Pace Federal Judicial Honors Program.

I believe that my professional and academic experience have provided me with the ability to effectively
contribute to Reed Jones as a summer associate. While interning this summer with the Kings County District
Attorney’s Office I had the opportunity to develop my lawyering skills. As an intern, I aided office
prosecutions by researching applicable statutory and case law to draft memoranda analyzing issues of
attempted murder, gun possession and arrest. In addition, I drafted briefs in support of motions in limine and
motions to suppress. I also conducted witness preparation, drafted an opening statement and closing
argument and created a chain of custody for admission of evidence. As a member of Reed Jones’s summer
associate program, I will use these practical skills and enhance them by embracing the challenges that arise.
Additionally, through my intensive Legal Skills course, I have developed strong legal research and writing
skills and have learned the importance of concise communication. Being competitively selected to write for
the PACE LAW REVIEW is a testament to the quality of my legal research and writing skills. Moreover, as a
participant in the Federal Judicial Honors Program, I will enhance my legal research and drafting skills
through academic training in an advanced legal writing course and practical experience as an intern in the
chambers of a federal judge. My studies have taught me the value of hard work and dedication, and I will
apply these values to my work as a summer associate at Reed Jones.
I hope to have the opportunity to discuss my experience and qualifications with you in greater detail. I have
attached a copy of my resume for your reference. Thank you for your consideration.
Very truly yours,
Katie Clark
