Post-Bankruptcy Clerkship Hiring

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jan 26, 2018 5:49 pm

We've touched on this issue in other threads, but I thought it would be useful to share information.

I'm in SDNY/DE. I know the following firms are holding receptions for law clerks, including bankruptcy:

Weil
Kirkland
Jenner & Block
Kramer Levin
WilmerHale

If anyone has info on which firms have started interviewing/hiring, that would certainly be helpful too.

I've interviewed with Kirkland (Chi) and received a ding (no interview) from Jenner.

I interviewed with them in NY last week. I think there were three others interviewing that day. I know of several invited to interview in the Chicago office.

There's no set timeline. Which firms are you interested in? I know of a few that have made offers.

Well, the market seems dead to me.

The only shop hiring seems to be Kirkland, and they're done in NYC.

Everyone else quiet.
