Asia SA programs

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jul 30, 2012 7:04 am

Hi I am wondering if anyone knows which law firms (maybe a definitive list if possible) hire SAs for their Asia offices? I've done much research(including going to official websites of firms with large Asia presences) and I am still having trouble locating which firms actually hire directly for their Asia offices and not for split summers.

Many firms have Asia offices and hire directly into them. In some firms, each office recruits separately, meaning that you will be a summer in an Asian office and be expected to start there following graduation. Others let you split, and the issue of where you start is based on firm needs and personal preference. The following firms have summers in Asian offices in some capacity:

Skadden
S&C
DPW
STB
Cleary
Weil
Shearman
Milbank
O'Melveny
MoFo
CC
A&O
Freshfields
Herbert Smith

This is not exhaustive, it is just firms I know of. There are a few others I have heard of hiring straight into Asian offices but am not sure if they have SAs. Will edit as people add to the list.

Don't quote me on this, but I think Mayer Brown also hires for their foreign offices
