Summer Program

The goal of the London office Summer Program is to introduce you to life at the Firm—our practice, our people and our culture. We provide a wide range of opportunities to experience the diversity of the Firm’s practice, as well as to meet and engage with our attorneys. You will split your time between London and one of the U.S. offices. Summer Associates will gain the chance to work with our U.S. Corporate team.

Our goal in assigning work is to provide you with a realistic view of life as an associate while simultaneously refining your research, communication, writing and legal analytical skills. You will work directly with partners and associates on a variety of active transactions and matters. To provide you with additional guidance during the summer program, you will be paired up with an associate and a partner mentor.

The goal for every London Summer Associate is to create opportunities to interact with Simpson Thacher employees and discover our commitment to providing our clients with the highest-quality, most commercial legal advice available anywhere in the world.

Simpson Thacher’s London office hosts many social activities throughout the summer, allowing you to spend time with our attorneys outside of the office and to experience life in London. Past summer activities have included axe throwing, mini golf, Lawn Bowls, and office parties.
