Splitting 1L SA?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Feb 22, 2012 3:55 pm

Is this something that "simply isn't done"? I've heard from other 1Ls that it is but not sure if that's true

To clarify, I know you can split government and biglaw, but can you split two biglaw firms in one SA?

I actually met someone who did this with two firms in their home market from a T6. He made it seem like it was a great idea.

Depends on the firm. Mine has a strict no splitting policy for 1Ls, but I imagine it's OK with others.

Go on nalp and look up the firms in the area. See if most allow split summers and what's typically the minimum number of weeks allowed.
