ACE @ Wilson: Accelerated Consideration for Employment

Launch Your Career Path

Recently, we created a new first step in our Summer Associate application process, the Accelerated Consideration for Employment, or “ACE” Program. Think of this as something akin to Early Action applications for university—an opportunity for applicants to show serious interest in Wilson Sonsini and get a decision from us on a much earlier timeline. 

If you have done your research and know that you want to be at Wilson Sonsini, in a specific practice group, and in a specific office, this program offers you an opportunity to begin our application process earlier and move through more quickly. Moreover, by applying through ACE, you are indicating interest and intent above and beyond that of many general pool applicants and will stand out because of it. Our aim is to simplify this process for our candidates so that you can get back to making the most out of your law school experiences. 

Each year, our ACE application will open in the Spring and close in early June. We will review applications on a rolling basis and schedule screening interviews in late June, with the goal of making initial offers before most traditional screenings begin.

When the ACE application is open, you will find it on our job postings page. Our general applications for the 2024 summer program opened on June 6, 2023.

Regardless of how you choose to apply, we look forward to meeting you soon!

What distinguishes Wilson Sonsini from other firms is our ability and need to think about where the law and where regulation is going and should go. We work with so many companies that are doing something for the first time or have a business model that is new. We have to be forward-thinking, and that makes it really exciting to be a lawyer here.
