“How I Came to ELS to Work as a Summer Associate” by Jamie Thompson

As a law student member of the Gate City Bar, I took advantage of the opportunity to apply for the Gate City Foundation, Inc. Summer Associate Program. I saw it as an invaluable opportunity to continue my commitment to diversity within the legal profession, while gaining substantive legal experience.

I was excited to hear that my application was well received by the committee and was extended an interview. During my interview, I expressed my interest in labor and employment law. I am happy to be spending my summer with The Employment Law Solution: McFadden Davis, LLC because of the firm’s reputation, legal talent and experience. The ELS Team has been so welcoming and supportive. I am eager to learn and build upon the firm’s record of success throughout these next six weeks with the Team.

Founded in 1948, the Gate City Bar Association is the oldest African-American bar association in the state of Georgia. It was established to provide the educational, social and community involvement of a professional association for African-American lawyers. Part of their mission is to encourage persons of outstanding promise to attend first-rate law schools and return to the communities that need their services most.
