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. Upon graduation from law school, the goal is to join the firm as an associate in 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.

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.
