Summer Associate Program

Elliott Greenleaf’s hiring practices focus on former federal and state judicial law clerks.  However, each summer, Elliott Greenleaf may welcome exceptional law students who have achieved the highest academic standing to work in our summer program from early June until late-July

Our summer program is purposefully limited, as its goal is to identify students who excel academically and professionally and evaluate their skills and judgments.  The size of our summer program allows us to ensure that each summer associate receives individual feedback from our attorneys to enhance the writing and advocacy skills required in Elliott Greenleaf’s practice.

To fulfill this goal, the summer program is designed as if each summer associate were a first year attorney. The firm assigns two mentors to each summer associate; the mentors provide the summer associate with advice on writing, advocacy and practical aspects of working in our offices. The summer associate receives assignments on a variety of litigation, healthcare, business and regulatory matters representative of the firm’s practice areas, from attorneys in all of our offices. This sampling is intended to introduce the summer associate to our diverse practice areas, while ever mindful of the quality of work product required in each area. The mentors review the written work product, provide comments, and ensure that feedback is timely and thorough.

The summer associates accompany attorneys to trials, closings, hearings, depositions, conferences and other judicial proceedings. It is important to us, and to the summer associate, to be exposed to the judgments and presentations made by Elliott Greenleaf’s attorneys in courtrooms and boardrooms.

Meaningful social interaction with the firm’s attorneys and their families is an important part of the Elliott Greenleaf’s summer associate experience. Each year, among other things, the summer associates spend time with the Firm’s attorneys, staff and their families at our annual summer picnic, trips to professional sporting events throughout the region, receptions at the local bar associations, and after-hour functions throughout the summer. The summer associates also play on the firm’s softball team and participate in other events organized throughout the summer.


Aetna/Elliott Greenleaf Diversity Summer Internship

Aetna, Inc. (“Aetna”), in partnership with Elliott Greenleaf, P.C. (“EG”), is accepting applications for the Aetna/Elliott Greenleaf Diversity Summer Internship Program (the “Program”).  Aetna is a national company that offers a broad range of traditional and consumer-directed health insurance products and related services, including medical, pharmacy, dental, behavioral health, group life and disability plans and medical management capabilities and health care management services.  EG is a regional law firm with Pennsylvania offices in Blue Bell, Harrisburg, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre and an office in Wilmington, Delaware.  EG focuses its business on a broad variety of complex commercial litigation, in federal and state trial and appellate courts.  EG has represented Aetna for almost twenty years on a diverse range of significant legal matters.

The Program’s primary purpose is to promote diversity in the workplace and offer one candidate per year a paid summer internship at Aetna and EG with the unique opportunity to work with both in-house and outside counsel across litigation matters.  The Program seeks highly qualified, motivated and diverse Villanova Law students who are interested in litigation and healthcare law, and who believe that they may, in the future, be interested in holding an in-house corporate counsel position.  Applicants must maintain a 3.0 or better cumulative grade point average.  The Program will cover a ten-week period where the intern will work five weeks for Aetna and five weeks for EG.  The offices of both Aetna and EGS are located in Blue Bell, PA.  Aetna and EG will coordinate supervision of the intern and the timing of his or her work at their various sites with the goal of ensuring continuity in the intern’s work on Aetna litigation matters and maximizing the intern’s exposure to different litigation opportunities that may arise over the course of the summer.  EG will seek to expose the participant to other, non-healthcare, litigation as well.  Aetna will seek to give the participant exposure to its legal organization and non-litigation issues.

Any candidate interested in a summer internship as detailed by the Program should submit a cover letter (addressed to John P. Elliott, Esquire at EG), resume, transcript and writing sample via e-mail ( on or before February 10, 2017. As interviews will be conducted on a rolling basis, qualified applicants are encouraged to submit the required paperwork as soon as possible. Excellent writing and research skills are a prerequisite.  Additionally, Aetna and EG seek candidates who demonstrate the ability to listen to, communicate with and work with a wide variety of people as these types of “people skills” facilitate corporate counsel’s ability to meet their clients’ expectations across different geographic regions and business lines.
