The latest crop of entries in the Wall Street Journal’s ongoing Summer Associate Diary (subscription) are pretty boring. If you don’t have a subscription, don’t worry; you’re not missing much. Here’s our executive summary:

Marc Allon (Jenner & Block/University of Michigan): “Mr. Allon has mixed feelings about heading back to school. At Jenner & Block, he liked the feeling of getting things done. ‘I found that I really liked offering [my services] to a client.’” Insert lawyers-and-prostitutes joke here.

Carolyn Gleason Sanchez (Quintana Law Group/University of Maryland): “In law school, you complain if you have a week to do an assignment, but in the real world you have to do it right away.” Yeah, it kinda sucks, doesn’t it?

Matthew Duke (Burr & Forman/University of Alabama): Wants to improve as a writer. Don’t we all.

Andrew Meyerson (Dorsey & Whitney/NYU): “Working at Dorsey has further convinced him that transactional law, not litigation, is what he’s suited for.” In other words: “My summer experience has taught me I’m even more boring than I thought I was.”

YAWN. If anyone has salacious summer associate stories from this past summer, please send ‘em our way (by email).
