How to Apply

We participate in interview programs and recruit at job fairs on more than 30 campuses nationwide. On-campus interviews provide an opportunity for us to learn about you and a way for you to gather information about our Firm. Please visit our Recruiting Calendar, so you can find out when we are conducting on-campus interviews at your school.

Once we have completed our on-campus interviews, we will invite eligible candidates to visit the Firm (at our expense) for further interviews with our partners and associates. Our hope is that this round of interviews will help us get to know you better and provide us with the chance to answer your questions. If we believe that you are a good fit with our Firm and our culture, we will extend an offer for you to join us as a summer associate. We will gladly have you back for another visit to speak with more attorneys if you need more information to make your final decision.

If you are interested in applying for a summer associate position at Simpson Thacher, please mail or email your resume and law school transcript to the appropriate office contact below:
