There is no Cravath “type.” Our lawyers represent a wide range of backgrounds and interests. Yet, all share important qualities—intelligence, creativity, energy, dedication and a commitment to excellence. All Cravath lawyers embrace challenge and practice law with the commitment that has built and sustained our singular reputation for more than two centuries. We seek law students who share our commitment. Cravath has consistently developed lawyers who provide the highest-quality legal services. We start by hiring law students who have an established record of success and proven talent. Our system then develops and refines this talent, as you team with our lawyers and test your own abilities and strengths in demanding circumstances. When you work with extraordinary people toward a common goal, you can attain the highest level of individual accomplishment and help sustain our remarkable record of collective achievement.
We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding lawyers from a variety of backgrounds.
Celebrating 200 years of partnership. In 2019, we celebrated our bicentennial. Our history mirrors that of our nation. Integral to our story is our culture.
