Labor and Employment firms selectivity

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 09, 2013 11:42 pm

How grade focused are the major L&E firms? I.e. Ogletree Deakins, Ford and Harrison, Fisher Phillips, and Littler Mendelson. Anyone have any experience with their entry level hiring?

Ogletree and Littler seem to have a pretty hard top 25% cap at SMU.

Thanks. That's actually not bad at all for a big firm at a regional school.

Summered at Jackson Lewis. about top 25% is right. probably best to show an interest in the field too.

Which office? Do you know what the compensation is for a first year attorney in a major market (Chi, NYC, LA)?

Secondary market in flyover. No idea regarding those cities but below market. They made a killing in the recession because their rates are lower, likely leading to lower first-year salaries, but they still do good work.
