Texas Big Law Second Half Splits

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 19, 2011 9:52 pm

I've been offered a 2L summer clerkship with a Big3 Firm in Texas for the first half of summer. Which Texas firms allow SECOND HALF SPLITS???

Thanks

I know BB does...if you split between two of their offices and do 5 weeks at each.

Different poster.

Weil Dallas has been doing CB's. My understanding from recruiting is that Weil Dallas hopes to have offers out by early next week.

Sorry to hijack, but anyone received an offer from Jackson Walker for first half? If so - what office and how long after CB?

I think they just interviewed a ton of people for only a handful of spots. On top of that, there aren't as many dallas firms that do second half, so I bet they have a relatively high acceptance ratio. Who knows...

can anybody speak their (informed) opinions on GDC Dallas versus a big3 BigTex firm? They just had 7 highly regarded VE partners move over there.

I know many say "avoid satellite/branch offices" but assuming you'd maybe like to have more outside-of-texas opportunities? And how satellite-y can they be if all those partners decided to move there

I summered there over the Big 3 and loved it. I'll PM you and answer any questions you have if you reply not-anonymously (I would do it, but the summer class is small and my tar is a giveaway).
