Overseas Offices 1L SAs

Postby pottedplants » Sun Dec 29, 2013 5:54 am

Sup TLS,

T14 1L with a few questions regarding 1L SAs with US firms' overseas offices:

1) To TLS' knowledge, do any firms offer 1L SA opportunities in overseas offices?

2) If so, what's the general process for applying? Is it worth mass mailing overseas branches if a firm's domestic branches doesn't offer the foreign offices as options?

Thanks!

Some firms in HK and London offer opportunities for JD students.
I asked the HK office of a top UK firm, and they said that their NY office is in charge of the recruitment for JD SA in HK

I did this as a 1L. I basically searched for alums (JD and LLM) of my school who were working in German offices of US firms and emailed them. They didn't have summer associate programs, but I found one willing to take me on and pay me the statutory amount German compAnies have to pay foreign interns. It was enough to live on. I also had an offer at a German firm, through a visiting researcher I had made friends with at my school through the language lunch tables.
