What were your thoughts/likes/dislikes of the summer if you dont mind?


Good social events, sat in on depositions of significant witnesses in big cases, sat in on team meetings, sat in on meet and confers with opposing counsel, generally friendly people to work with. Not much I can say I disliked about the summer.

I'm more interested in the assertion that Kirkland pays more.

PH salary is lockstep, but the bonuses are credited.

Hey folks, this might be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyways. (anon for stupid question)

With clerkship hiring pushing to be sooner and sooner, if one has a clerkship lined up (either 1 or 2 years), should s/he still do PILP or OCI as a 3L? (hoping for a job after clerkship?)
