Any database for SA offer rates?

Postby mjitbswyd » Wed May 25, 2011 3:29 am

Except going to every single websites of the firms, how can one know about the offer (of a permanent job) rates of their SA program?

thanks.

NALP has it for the individual firms, I think.

This is great, thank you both.

Seems most firms hire 100% (or something close) of their SAs?

Generally that's correct. In summer 2009 offer rates at many firms were significantly lower (50% to 75% was not uncommon) because they hired in 2008 before the market crash, but most of those firms were able to return to near-100%. That said, there's still a lot of economic uncertainty, and firms are hiring summers for their expected needs in two years (if you get an offer, you'll begin work roughly two years after OCI unless you clerk), so some departures from the 100% standard are inevitable.

Searching Above The Law can yield good historical information. Firms with particularly poor offer rates got their own posts, an they occasionally made "round up" posts listing the offer rates for several firms. It's worth knowing how things were historically, though obviously nobody knows what the future of the legal economy holds in store for any given firm.

Generally speaking, offer rates are pretty close to 100% everywhere, except for when you are looking at the two years when the hiring market was really going to hell. Summer Associates are basically a huge, extravagant waste of a firm's money, so it makes sense for a firm only to bring on SAs that it intends to hire permanently.
