Negotiating with Summer Firms

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 14, 2016 10:56 am

Has anyone with full-time offers from multiple firms after 2L summer negotiated for anything extra?

I'm not expecting anything crazy, but something like better benefits or part-time work as a 3L? Just curious if anyone has done this successfully.

Jesus Christ, don't do this.

What are you basing that on?

This is a great idea if you want firms to pull your offers. I assume that is your unstated goal?

Lol no. You're not special and they can fill their class with literally anyone else. Big law hiring does not work like this for entry level.

You have zero leverage as an entry-level attorney. They can and will find someone else to fill your spot.
