From New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., to Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London and Toronto, our summers benefit from unique learning experiences in an array of dynamic offices.

New York

In our New York office, you will have the opportunity to explore our Corporate, Executive Compensation, Litigation, Personal Representation, Real Estate, Restructuring and Tax departments. Choose one department to call your home, or select a variety of work from a number of different practice areas. While you enhance your professional skills through a robust training curriculum, substantive assignments and direct exposure to closings, client meetings, trials and depositions, you will also have the opportunity to experience the best of summer in the city — from sailing around Manhattan to Yankees games to Shakespeare in the Park. There are plenty of opportunities for informal socializing, including an evening at the Museum of Modern Art where guests mingle in the Sculpture Garden and roam the galleries while enjoying world-class food and art.

San Francisco

In our San Francisco office, you will have the opportunity to explore our Corporate and Litigation departments in a dynamic and growing office environment. Through hands-on mentorship and training from leading M&A, private equity, white collar and litigation practitioners, you will build your legal skillset while gaining exposure to companies and investors shaping the future of the global economy. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to take advantage of all that the Bay Area has to offer through social events ranging from trips to wine country and outings to cheer on the San Francisco Giants.

Washington, D.C.

In our Washington, D.C. office, you will have the opportunity to work on the same variety of litigation and regulatory matters as in the New York office, but in a smaller office environment. The D.C. summer program includes a variety of events at partners’ homes; weekly lunches featuring prominent alumni and high-profile D.C. denizens, including government officials; touring the capital’s landmarks; sporting events; cooking classes; and more. There will also be opportunities to join Paul, Weiss summer associates from the firm’s other offices for some of our most popular social events in New York City.

London

Our summer program in London offers a unique learning experience within our Corporate Department in a truly global setting. The program begins with orientation and training in New York and then continues in London. You will work with leading practitioners on global capital markets transactions, cross-border M&A, private equity investments and financings. In addition to honing your professional skills, you will be able to participate in our most popular New York social events and then enjoy all of the attractions of the British capital.

Toronto

Our summer program in Toronto offers you the opportunity to work on sophisticated and complex international transactions within our Corporate Department, while enjoying a small office environment. Located in the city’s thriving financial district, the Toronto office works closely with many of the most significant companies and institutions in Canada on their U.S. legal matters. After orientation in New York, this highly interactive program continues in Toronto where you can hone your legal skills on cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets transactions. You will experience a variety of social events in Toronto as well as join the New York summers for some of our most popular events.
