Biglaw Start Dates for c/o 2012

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Nov 19, 2011 3:05 pm

For those of you 2012 grads heading to Biglaw, when are you starting full-time next year? I'm going to a Texas office of a large firm, and they're hinting at starting in November. I'm just trying to get an idea of when everyone else is starting up, and if official word has been released. Please put your market and whether the dates are official (at least) in comments. Thanks!

We were told likely mid-October. I doubt anyone has an official date this early.

I was told September 10th was the anticipated start date, but I haven't seen anything in writing yet other than 2012. Going to a big firm in secondary market in the northeast.

Until you're sitting at your desk, nothing is guaranteed ITE.

Chicago market - probably the only one in this boat, but starting full-time in a non-associate position on Sept. 10, then full-time associate position 1/13.

Is this in response to the question about Weil's start date?

No, this was with regard to another firms. Top 20 something; not Weil.
