Stipends or salary advances?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Sep 17, 2011 12:06 pm

Which NYC firms give bar stipends and which give advances that must be repaid? This seems like useful information that is not readily available anywhere I am aware of.

It's a bit outdated, but I think most firms have held at this model. It's a good starting point, anyway.

My firm is still following what is listed on there, fwiw.

Thanks, this is really useful. However, I am confused how firms can differ up to $10K on this, especially given how law firms tend to follow the market on pretty much everything else. Is this upfront lump sum just difference just not enough to sway anyone to go to one firm over another?
