Latham & Watkins was once again honored to host West Point cadets as part of the US Military Academy's Academic Individual Advanced Development (AIAD) program. The program gives cadets the opportunity to work side by side with business and government leaders.
During the weeks-long internship, cadets Jessica Reimchen and John Paik, who are majoring in Law and Legal Studies, spent time working with several practices in the firm’s New York office, gaining valuable exposure to different areas of law.
Alan Avery, partner in the New York office and West Point alumnus, said: “Jess and John demonstrated terrific leadership skills, and we were very proud to have them with us this summer. As they continue with their studies, we hope that they are able to apply the knowledge they learned during this experience and look forward to their continued success.”
