After Harvey Specter, New York City's best closer, finally achieves his goal of becoming a senior partner at Pearson Hardman, he discovers he must hire a new associate from Harvard Law School. Mike stumbles into the interviews when he discovers his drug delivery is a sting operation. Even though Mike never attended law school, Harvey is impressed enough with Mike, (and disgusted enough with the other applicants) to hire him. To keep his promotion, Harvey must personally handle a pro bono case, in which a woman claims her boss sexually harassed her. Instead, he assigns it to Mike.
