Our Summer Associate Program 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. We offer opportunities for students to either spend their entire summer in London or, on a case-by-case basis, split their time with a Skadden U.S. office. Students have the opportunity to experience corporate, securities, and white collar crime work while undertaking a placement in London. However, we do not offer experience in litigation or international arbitration to summer associates.
All summer associates are assigned to active matters and participate in our training programs. Each summer associate also is paired with a partner liaison and a associate or a counsel mentor.
In addition to the work experience our summer associates obtain, we provide a wide range of social activities to allow our summer associates to experience the unique cultural, historical and social setting of our London office and better get to know our attorneys. These events are coupled with informal lunches, dinners and cocktail outings with our attorneys.
Please sign up for an interview in the summer with your school’s career services or apply online.
