2L Summer Associate - Exam/Holiday Gifts from Firms

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Dec 10, 2013 4:05 pm

I have been hearing that these have slowly trickled out at a few firms - the typical smattering of cookies, brownies, mugs, and blankets. I obviously want an Ostrich Pillow with my firms logo (http://www.studiobananathings.com/product/ostrich-pillow/) but has anyone heard of anything unique being given out this year?

S&C was a gift basket of cookies, chocolate, gummy fish, grass-fed beef jerky, and peanuts.

DPW gave out a bucket of that fancy popcorn with 5 different flavors or whatever. Cadwalader gave out hooded sweatshirts and one firm I heard may have given out a robe.

Who needs sleeves when you have guns?

Depends on the firm but most likely both.
