The folks over at Above the Law are reporting shocking numbers of lawyers who have been let go from their firms and entering first year associates who’s start dates have been postponed (all the way to 11/10) or who’s offers have been revoked! A variety of alternatives have been employed to retain summer programs, such as hiring fewer students and shortening summer programs. However, some firms have cancelled their summer program entirely!
Sheesh! Thank God I don’t work for a firm. The future of in-house legal counsel is for now, uncertain; my job could be in peril. Note to self: Hope for the best. Plan for the worst. Rid thyself of those shopaholic ways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
