Assuming we're talking corporate law/litigation in New York, the less clear-cut ones I was wondering about are: Latham, White & Case and Paul Weiss. It seems that 3 years ago a top 1/3 top 10 would have a very good shot at these firms, but I wonder if the trickle-down effect has changed things. Does anyone have any insight (anecdotal or otherwise)?


I don't think Paul Weiss is quite as picky, but I considered including them. Weil is not as picky as you would expect, even with their huge pickup in bankruptcy work. I have no idea why anybody would want to work at Latham or White & Case after the past few years.

Would that still be too ambitious if the OP were top 1/3 at a T6 (I'm assuming they meant a non-T6 T10 by the title of the post)?

Also, by ambitious, do you mean that they are reaches that are still reasonable to include, or that you would not include them if you were bidding for yourself? (Or that you'd put them as low priority bids as TTT-LS has suggested)

Sounds like a solid plan. How do we go about doing this aside from news on ATL/TLS and word of mouth?

List seems appropriate.

Some of the firms are probably out of range (Cleary, Deb), but then again, I know people who are around the top 1/3 (and are also not on LR) at both of those firms this summer.

NALP directory has # of Summer Assoicates 08-09-10 (anticipated) and number of offers in the 09 class
--LinkRemoved--

My plan is to scan that and to scan ATL and newswires for firings of full times.
