Washington University School of Law alumni at Sullivan & Cromwell practice within its General Practice (corporate) and Litigation groups, where they focus on matters including capital markets, civil litigation, and banking and finance regulation. In addition, they are actively involved with the Firm’s pro bono practice: recent matters include obtaining U visas for a client and her children (for which the S&C team was awarded the “Commitment to Justice Award” by Her Justice) and obtaining an order of protection for a survivor of domestic violence after a nine-month trial.
WashULaw has demonstrated its uniquely strong commitment to mentorship by pairing all students with a career services professional, faculty member, advisor, and alumnus or alumna. S&C’s focus on mentoring relationships is similarly strong and multi-faceted. Summer associates are paired with a partner advisor, associate development partner, associate advisor and associate buddy, each of whom plays an important role in the summer associate’s professional development and integration into the Firm. Upon returning as regular associates after graduation or clerkships, junior lawyers are paired with at least one partner advisor from their practice group or sub-group. The partner advisor and associate meet regularly to discuss the associate’s career development plan, assignments, skills development and any other relevant matters. In addition, junior associates in New York are paired with midlevel and senior associates on their office floors who are responsible for helping new associates integrate into the Firm.
We hope you will take the time to learn more about WashULaw alumni at S&C and how to apply on these pages.
