Summer Program for US Students

During the law school interview season, we conduct interviews with JD candidates around the country for summer and first-year associate positions. The London office participates in on-campus interviews at a number of US law schools and considers applications through resume collections at a number of additional law schools.

In keeping with Latham’s one-firm culture, we typically send a team of lawyers who are committed to outreach at that particular school to interview students on behalf of all of our offices.

If you are unable to meet with us while we are on campus for interviews and you would like to pursue opportunities with Latham, please forward a cover letter, resume and transcript to [email protected].
