Summer Associates

Our Summer Associate Program in Hong Kong is geared towards students in three-year J.D. programs in the United States who will be admitted to practice law in the United States. Skadden’s Hong Kong office offers summer associates two options: (1) a full summer in Hong Kong with the goal of starting in Hong Kong or China as a first-year associate; or (2) on a limited basis, a split summer between the firm’s Hong Kong and New York offices with the goal of starting in New York as a first-year associate and relocating to Hong Kong or China after participating in a corporate rotation program in New York.

Summer associates work with the firm for 11 weeks and are assigned a mentor. All summer associates are assigned to active matters and participate in our training programs.

In addition to gaining work experience, our summer associates participate in a wide range of social activities, which allow them to experience the unique cultural, historical and social setting of our Asia offices and better get to know each other and our attorneys. These events are coupled with informal lunches, dinners and cocktail outings with our attorneys.
