Congratulations to Mr. Chuck and his co-conspirators. It appears that their efforts to exert grassroots pressure on Mayer Brown, with the goal of getting the firm to inform them of the terms of their offers, have borne fruit.
So, what are the terms of their offers?
According to the posted comments, which we’ve independently verified (with some but not all of the affected individuals), class of 2010 graduates who are Mayer-bound are getting the following deal:
(a) fall 2011 start dates;
(b) a $60,000 stipend, with no pro bono required; but
(c) no health insurance.
A caveat: we don’t know that every member of the class is getting the same deal. If you can confirm the details above — or if you’ve gotten a different deal from Mayer, or no deal at all — please email us.
Notwithstanding this caveat, we believe that all Mayer Brown incoming associates have been told something about the terms of their offers.
So, once again, congratulations to Mr. Chuck & Co. Even in an awful job market, it seems that grassroots movements can sometimes succeed.
