Summer Wages for 1Ls, 2Ls.

Postby abcdefghijkl » Thu Jun 20, 2013 1:15 pm

How much money can 1Ls and 2Ls expect to earn in summer jobs at 1) HYS, 2) CCN, and 3) T14?

I recognize that it will vary extensively based on preferences, ability, class rank, etc., but I suppose I'm looking for a ballpark figure.

From one I've read online, Biglaw firms pay summer associates about $3,000 per week

Expect low amounts (maybe <$5000) for your 1L summer as paid jobs are few and far between. If you can land biglaw firm for 2L summer, its about $3070/week.

For what its worth, my 1L summer pays ~$8k/month. They're rare, but definitely do exist.

2L @ Market paying boutique (for Attorneys). For the only SA - I'm getting a cush $12/hr. They hired their last SA, and paying > $125K. Crossing my fucking fingers they do the same for me.
