Summer Program

Simpson Thacher's Summer Program is designed to be a challenging and satisfying opportunity for exceptional law students to gain a window into the Firm's work and culture.


"One of the things we hope for all our summer associates is that not only will they get to know the people in their summer associate class, but they'll meet people from different departments, different groups, different offices."

- Jonathan Youngwood, Litigation Partner

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Simpson Thacher is deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We pride ourselves in fostering an environment where individuals from a broad range of backgrounds can be their authentic selves, find mentors and thrive as lawyers. Belonging at Simpson is knowing and feeling that you are seen, heard and valued.


Associate Life

Simpson Thacher's goal is to help young lawyers to develop essential skills and broad-based knowledge, instead of narrow niches of legal expertise - especially at the outset of their careers.


"Most of us work with a wide variety of people, not just in our own offices but also in different practice areas."

- Cheryl Scarboro, Litigation Partner
