A few disparate items of interest to law school applicants and students:
- Associate salaries are going up, but the summit differs based on location. NYC first year associates at top firms will be cashing in $160,000 a year. California firms will stick to the meager $145,000 paycheck. Many assume that California firms will also maintain their slightly more modest billable hours requirement when compared to NY law firms. For details, please see "Associates React to Jones Day and Weil Gotshal Salary Raises."
- I was recently interviewed by a reporter for the National Jurist and decided to check out the magazine. Its articles were informative, and I recommend it for law school applicants and students. This month’s issue had articles on study abroad options during law school, the influence of the rankings on law school admissions practice, and legal clinics and their role in legal education at different schools.
- Fox in "Public Service Post" lays out the pros and cons of attending UCLA Law School after his first year there.
- For those of you who are curious about the Daily Journal article on law school admissions consultants and don’t have access to those articles, you can have some sense of it from the Daily Trojan article, "Law applicants look online for help" which draws extensively from the original piece.
