Information for the Summer 2019 program for the Class of 2020 (rising 2Ls) will be posted in July 2018.  Applications from rising 2L candidates will be accepted between June 1 – July 1, 2018. Thank you for your interest in Brooks Pierce.

Applications from 1L students (Class of 2020) only are being accepted for the 2018 Summer Program.  Please email your cover letter, resume, and transcript (unofficial or official) in a single pdf to Gail Cutter, Director of Recruiting and Professional Development, at   


In your cover letter, kindly indicate:

  • Your ties to North Carolina and your long-term interest to practice in the state.

Brooks Pierce values diversity of all kinds, and we encourage and welcome applications from all highly qualified candidates, including women, Students of Color, students of ethnic and religious minorities, LGBTQ students, students with disabilities, students from backgrounds of socioeconomic disadvantage, second career students, students in military service and veterans.
