Even though we’ve been busy covering the start dates of graduating 3Ls, we don’t want to ignore what is going on with summer programs.
So let’s catch up with the news out of Philadelphia. Summer programs are so short there that summer associates won’t be able to get in more than a couple of trips to Atlantic City.
Buchanan Ingersoll will also scale back its 2009 summer associate program by three weeks, bringing it down to seven weeks, the spokeswoman said. She said there will be 10 summer associates firmwide compared to the 23 summers the firm had in 2008.
How competitive will those seven weeks be? Last summer, Buchanan Ingersoll extended offers to 13 of its 23 summer associates. But maybe the small program will allow the firm to give offers to all of its summers?
