There’s no major movement to report on the base salary front, but clerkship bonuses continue to climb. The latest firm to raise its clerkship bonus, from $15K to $50K (or $70K for two clerkships): Schulte Roth & Zabel. From their website:
Upon arrival at the Firm directly following an eligible one-year clerkship, associates receive a clerkship bonus of $50,000. Those who join us directly following an eligible two-year clerkship (or two successive eligible one-year clerkships) will receive a bonus of $70,000.
If you are aware of clerkship bonus news that we haven’t previously reported — you can check what we’ve covered before by doing a site search — please email us. Thanks.
