Our rotational program gives summer associates the opportunity to work on real legal issues across various practice areas. Summer associates typically rotate through two practice groups in which they’ve expressed an interest. Some decide to rotate through one of our corporate groups and then spend the second rotation in Litigation. Others have decided to experience a smaller group vs. a larger group. The best part is, you decide.
Each year, a number of summer associates are given an opportunity to spend time in more than one firm office. In recent years, summer associates have spent time in our Hong Kong, London, Paris, São Paulo, Shanghai, and Tokyo offices. In addition, summer associates have split their time among our North American offices in New York, the Bay Area, Toronto, and Washington, DC. If you’re interested in splitting your summer, we encourage you to mention this at the outset of the interview process. Office placement decisions are based on the business needs of each office and individual levels of summer associate interest, so a separate interview is not necessary.
