Just curious about which firms pay signing bonus to JD/MBAs? Heard Latham and Goodwin are doing it but how much?

Kirkland gives a class bump (or used to). If they've done away with that, I suspect they at least offer a bonus.

Bump 2021

Any v10’s not give at least progression credit or bonus. And how negotiable is this post-SA.

As of two years ago skadden was giving a year bump for an MBA. Or at least I knew a JD/MBA joint grad who came in getting pay/bonus of a second year.

Curious too - do you negotiate this post-SA (assuming offer given)?

Does it come automatically or do you have to ask? Or is this a firm by firm thing.

Random data point, but a friend from law school got a JD/MBA, but when she lateralled she skipped a class year because the firm she went to credited it. She did not ask for or expect the bump and was surprised. So you never know.

Skadden, Kirkland, STB, DPW, Latham

Not surprising when looking at that particular group of firms.
