How To Apply

We have now completed our second-year hiring for our 2017 summer program.  

Boston, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and Washington, D.C.

In addition, we are interested in candidates who have an interest in working in our Asia offices in the future. We prefer candidates who have relevant language skills and/or connection to the region where the office is located (although not always necessary). While we currently do not have a summer program in these offices, we would still encourage you to apply. We do offer the opportunity to do a summer rotation in our Tokyo, Hong Kong or Shanghai offices for highly qualified candidates with interest and background.

Applying to more than one office:

For our summer program, we prefer you target the office or offices in which you would like to work and apply for up to two offices. For select candidates, we will offer a summer split program where you can spend equal time in two of our offices during our summer program. In certain circumstances, the firm will pre-approve future moves to other Ropes & Gray offices for incoming associates. For more information, please go here.

How to apply: 

If Ropes & Gray will be interviewing on-campus at your law school, please sign-up to see us on-campus through your career services office. Please see our On-Campus Schedule for the list of law schools we will be visiting. When we go on-campus, we recruit as one firm. Our on-campus interviewers are interviewing for all offices.

If you do not see your law school listed on our On-Campus Schedule, please apply through our online application system. Please submit only one application for consideration. Please indicate which office or offices you are interested in under the “comments” field of the online application form when you apply.

Materials we need from you:

We will need your resume and transcript (an unofficial copy is fine). Cover letter is optional. We would also like to know the office or offices for which you would like to be considered and your practice interests.

When you can expect to hear from us:

If we are not meeting you on-campus and you apply through our online application system, Ropes & Gray will contact you directly if we are interested in scheduling an interview screen with you.
