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

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

Global Offices

Serving clients has always been the central focus of Simpson Thacher and that is why we have made ourselves available wherever our clients need us. Since the Firm was founded in 1884, a diverse range of clients have turned to us for advice on their most complex and challenging legal matters, and we have built a worldwide presence with eleven offices and more than 1,000 lawyers.

How to Apply

"Simpson allows you to rotate through the various practice groups in Corporate and I believe that truly lends itself to professional development. It makes you a more well-rounded attorney."

- Audra Amarosa, Corporate Associate
