From New York and Washington, D.C., to Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, London and Toronto, our summers benefit from unique learning experiences in an array of global offices.
While you enhance your professional skills by attending trials, depositions, closings and client meetings, 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. At the annual MoMA Reception, more than 700 guests mingle in the Sculpture Garden and roam the galleries while enjoying world-class food, music and art.
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. This collegial setting allows the D.C. office to offer its unique four-day summer associate mock trial program, which is judged by the partners in the office and enriches our robust legal training program. Other highlights include 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; a concert; and a high-flying evening at trapeze school. 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.
Our summer programs in China and Japan are designed for students who have a demonstrated interest in broadening their experience globally and pursuing their careers in Asia in the longer term.
This summer program gives summer associates the opportunity to split their time between New York and China. Based in our Beijing or Hong Kong office, summer associates will have the opportunity to work as part of the firm’s China Practice on sophisticated and complex international cross-border M&A, private equity investments and financing transactions in a small office environment. Upon graduation, typically associates spend up to two years in our Corporate Department in New York, and, should they join the M&A team, will be given the option to be seconded or to be transferred to Beijing or Hong Kong to continue their career.
This summer program is designed for summer associates who have an interest in either Corporate or Litigation and gives summer associates the opportunity to split their time between New York and Tokyo.

Upon graduation, associates interested in our Japan Practice typically spend their first few years in either the Corporate or Litigation Departments in New York, and will be given the opportunity to be transferred to Tokyo to continue their careers.
Our summer program in London offers a unique learning experience in a truly global setting. The program begins with several weeks in New York and continues in London. Summers 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.
Our summer program in Toronto offers you the opportunity to work on sophisticated and complex international corporate transactions in 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, capital markets and restructurings. You can attend Blue Jays games and also join the New York summers for some of our most popular events.
