Feedback & Evaluations
Weil’s Feedback StyleBy Karen LuoJuly 29, 2019
At Weil, summer associates receive two formal reviews: one in the middle of the summer and one at the end. Our assigned summer partner mentors gather feedback from associates and partners with whom we have worked to ensure that we are learning and contributing our best work. However, our reviews are not limited to two formal reviews. This summer, upon the closing of a transaction, the partner on the matter asked all associates who were on the deal to attend a post-closing discussion. In that discussion, the partner asked the associates and me for feedback. He asked us to opine on what we felt went smoothly with the deal and…
Weil Has The X-FactorBy Sara WeissJune 24, 2019
From the first moment I interviewed at Weil, I had a gut feeling this place was special. My first impressions have been confirmed and exceeded every day I have spent at Weil this summer. I am a huge fan of singing shows, so I would say that Weil has the “X-factor.” As I have walked down halls, I’ve noticed attorneys have their offices open; it is typical to find attorneys engaged in conversations with each other.

NEW YORK – Summer days drifting away to oh oh those law school nights . That was one of the lines from a play on the song Summer Nights my team performed at Weil’s Regional Weekend on July 14 – one of the highlights of my summer experience.

The weekend was full of activities such as the Weil Challenge, dinners and live band karaoke. As a summer associate, I was able to meet partners, associates and fellow summer associates…
How I Chose Weil and Why I’m Glad I DidBy Anais NingJuly 6, 2016
DALLAS – Weil is a firm marked by its attorneys’ and staffs’ genuine sense of community and true enjoyment of each other and their work. In choosing a firm as a 2L, I had been lost in the process of numerous interviews around the country with many excellent law firms. Yet in the midst of distinguished firms, Weil stood out in its commitment to a one firm culture that fosters dedication to developing the professional capacities of its associates.
Summer Program Committee Groups at WeilBy Larissa LucasJuly 5, 2016
NEW YORK – From my very first interactions with Weil attorneys, I have been consistently impressed with the Firm’s culture and the emphasis placed on collegiality, teamwork and mentorship. I am happy to report that more than halfway through the Summer Program, my expectations regarding these aspects of the Firm’s culture have not only been met, but exceeded. One aspect of Weil’s Summer Program that is integral to facilitating this is our Summer Program Committee (“SPC”) Groups.
