NALP Perspectives on Fall 2013 Law Student Recruiting
Click here to read NALP’s Perspectives on Fall 2013 Law Student Recruiting, which provides information about law firm interviewing activity, summer programs and offer and acceptance rates. Of particular note for the 2013 season:
- Summer programs were typically 8-10 weeks long.
“For firms reporting on a firm-wide basis, the median [summer associate] class size was 19, and ranged from 9 in firms of 101-250 lawyers to 44 in firms of 701+.”
- 92% of summer associates received an offer for an associate position (up from 90% the year before).
- 47% of callback interviews resulted in an offer.
“Recruiting volumes by U.S. law firms on the campuses of U.S. law schools remained mostly flat during the late summer and early fall of 2013 compared with recruiting activity the year before. There were variations by region and by city, but overall law firms continued to exhibit caution in recruiting new associates.”
