Summer Associates

Our Summer Associate Program in Tokyo 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. Tokyo summer associates split their time with a Skadden U.S. office, most frequently New York. Upon graduation from law school, the goal is to join the firm as an associate and spend two years in a U.S. office before returning to Tokyo.
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.
