June 3, 2008

Miami, Florida, June 3, 2008 Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP is pleased to announce that nine summer associates have joined the firm for its 2008 summer associate program.

Bilzin Sumberg's summer associate program includes a six week mock real estate program that was designed to allow students to work hands-on using practical transactional real estate skills. This program was so successful that earlier this year Harvard Law School selected Bilzin to adapt the program into a 90 minute seminar for its law students.

In joining the Bilzin team, these summer associates will be able to work alongside attorneys who are nationally recognized within their practice areas. The summer associates will be challenged with realistic scenarios and invaluable lessons that will be effective tools within their careers.

This year's summer associates are:

    Lauren Marisa Murphey attends New York University and has a bachelors degree from the University of Florida.
