How to Apply

At Simpson Thacher, we are intent on helping exceptional students become exceptional lawyers. Each year we seek to fill our summer associate class with a diverse array of talented students from law schools across the country. We’re thrilled to start meeting the future members of our 2020 summer class.

Summer 2020 

Over the coming months, we look forward to speaking with students about our 2020 summer associate class. Our goal is to be as flexible as possible when connecting with students throughout this process. You can reach out to your career services office to find out when we will be interviewing on your campus, or you can contact us directly to begin the process.

We know that one size does not fit all for each student, so we welcome the opportunity to meet with interested candidates in advance of the OCI process. If you wish to apply directly to us for a position in the Simpson Thacher 2020 Summer Associate Program, you may apply online below. We are reviewing applications on a rolling basis, with interviews in various cities anticipated to begin after June 1, 2019. We are eager to meet you, and we encourage you to apply once you have finished your final exams.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
