Gallagher & Kennedy Welcomes Three Summer Associates

Gallagher & Kennedy is pleased to welcome Erin Jenkins, Carl “CJ” Sjulin, and Robert Teuton to our 2022 Summer Associate Program. During their summer clerkship at G&K, Erin, Rob, and CJ will work on matters with each of the firm’s practice groups, including litigation, personal injury, criminal defense, environmental, intellectual property, real estate, tax, employment, and corporate and business transactions.

G&K’s summer program provides law students with significant legal and social opportunities to learn about the day-to-day practice and business of law in the private sector. Summer associates work on research and writing projects, and observe trials, hearings, depositions, mediations, and arbitrations. In addition to the wide range of legal work, summers are immersed in firm culture while attending affinity group and trade association socials, practice group meetings, lunch-and-learn programs, and attorney-hosted dinner parties. Their robust social calendar includes a service project with Feed My Starving Children, mixology and cooking classes, TopGolf outings, and Diamondbacks games in the G&K Suite.
