Here is an email I have theoretically received while moving and not checking my email: “Hello Walrus, I really want to bring some summers to your summer associate trivia thing. I know you say that I can be reimbursed by my firm, but I don’t want to be the first person to go to the recruiting person to ask.”
Fine. We’ve asked for you. Above the Law is hosting a trivia event on July 10th at Connolly’s in New York City. Associates can bring a teams of up to five summers with them to represent their firm. The winning team will get a championship belt to take back to their firm. Drinks and food will be provided. It will be fun.
And since you don’t want to ask, we have. We’ve emailed 75 firms around New York City, they know what we’re doing and they’re expecting your call. In addition, teams representing the following firms have already signed up: Curtis Mallet, Frommer Lawrence, Gibson Dunn, Vedder Price, Herbert Smith, Fish & Richardson.
We expect to see you guys there. We expect enough of you to come to justify buying this preposterous belt.
