First Half Only - Texas

Postby Poldy » Wed Jul 27, 2016 10:43 am

Anyone have a list of which Texas firms are first half only or which firms allow second half internships?

I have seen people get second half with every firm but it depends on the candidate.

I think the people getting second half at first half firms also worked there during their 1L summer. Let me know if there is some other way they are making it happen.

Oftentimes yes, but not exclusively. You just ask the recruiter (probably after you have an offer) whether you can do second half and they'll run it up the chain. Typical first half only though are Weil, JD, BB, V&E, Latham. Not sure about K&E.

Absent very special circumstances, K&E requires 10 weeks and does not allow splits like most traditional Texas firms. Everyone I know who asked K&E to split was rejected unless it was a special circumstance with their 1L firm, and even then people still worked 9/10 weeks.

Rumor has it a lot of firms are moving away from splits next year entirely...
