I know of at least one school left off this list. I wonder if all of these lists are similarly incomplete. (Not calling OP out, just making an observation.)


This is the list that was emailed to the summer class. It is also consistent with my real life experience as a PH NY summer.

My firm has 7 people this summer...6 on NALP 2013 "expected." Does this mean 1 no-offer?


If your firm has no-offered people in the past, then yes. Not flame. However, if your firm traditionally gives out 100% offers, you probably have nothing to worry about.

You really think that the NALP forms provide any evidence whatsoever that the poster should be concerned about this?

I thought the "expected" numbers were just how many people they had hired in the fall. Maybe they added someone in the spring. It doesn't mean they accidentally overhired.

Steptoe & Johnson PLLC (regional firm):

6: WVU
4: tOSU
2: W&M
1: Penn State
1: Pitt
1: W&L
1: Richmond
1: Cinci
1: GWU

I am probably screwing this all up. I will re-update this when I see where everyone is from on Tuesday via the intranet.

So I know this is off topic, but, how the hell are there two Steptoe & Johnsons?

If you're gonna start a regional firm I guess you might as well go ahead and call it Cravath.

They used to be one firm but the DC office split off in the 80s because it went in a much different direction, practice area wise.

The national Steptoe is actually the "fake" Steptoe (it's not fake, but it does not explicitly own it's name -- the license to the name resides with the regional Steptoe and if there is ever a true conflict, they are entitled to the name as per the agreement after the split). The DC firm split off since it was doing a different type of work. If I had to take a wild guess, I assume that they regret it a bit now with all of the insane amounts of energy $$$ flowing into the regional Steptoe.
