Didn't necessarily mean biglaw.
Very, very few firms outside of biglaw have the resources to waste on 1L summers. Maybe boutiques, but the ones doing well enough to hire 1Ls still shell out the same pay.
I work at a mid-size in a major market that pays 1Ls marginally less, so when I made that statement, it was based on my own personal knowledge of a situation where that is the case. But yes, you are right that the majority of firms that hire 1Ls pay the same.
Is your firm hiring 1Ls this next year?
