The Singapore Office prefers to hire new lawyers qualified either in the United States or
Each associate in Jones Day's Singapore Office receives a wide variety of work assignments and we encourage our associates to develop a "minor" in a second area of practice. We find that this system, while perhaps not as efficient as assigning each associate lawyer to a single practice in a single jurisdiction, develops very well-rounded lawyers. In addition to promoting associates who have risen through the ranks, the office has a solid track record of promoting lateral associates to partner.
New lawyers attend the New Lawyer Academy, an annual event held in Washington, D.C. Each fall, new lawyers assemble from our more than 40 offices around the world to meet and network with each other and learn what it means to be One Firm Worldwide. Our Firm leaders, partners, and associates teach the new lawyers about Jones Day's culture, history, organization, and achievements and lead substantive and interactive training sessions. Every year, our new lawyers take away from the Academy a sense of great pride and excitement about being part of the Firm.
The Singapore Office does not hire summer associates or articling clerks.
