1L Job Search - Birmingham Firms

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Feb 19, 2017 7:09 pm

Thought this would be a good place to start contributing info as we start getting it -

For now I know that Sirote, Bradley, Baker Donelson and Maynard have selected their call backs. Sirote has also given offers out. Any other info?

Bump. Curious as well. 1L who has interviewed with a few of the big Bham firms. They seem to be moving slow.

Can confirm, Balch sent out call back invitations earlier this week.

Does anyone know about Bradley or Lightfoot?

I had a Lightfoot screener yesterday-- seems like they're moving at a slower pace than the rest of the Bham firms

I'd rather not. This thread is dead though, so just ask.

depends on the firm. some are faster, some are slower. Also it depends on when your call back was and when the hiring committee meets.

From what it seems to me, all the big firms in Bham are pretty much done with their offers and hires

I'm still waiting on some news from Balch, but all the other BHAM firms I interviewed with have gotten back to me with offers or otherwise at this point. I'm thinking if I don't hear from Balch by the end of the day that I just won't hear back from them.

I heard some people are wanting to back out of Bradley because they don't like the other 1Ls trying to work there/going to late callbacks
