Contests

Readers of Above the Law are a classy bunch. Sure, you enjoy a good sex scandal every now and then — who doesn’t? But you also enjoy more high-minded fare, ranging from Supreme Court analysis to career advice to discussion of the history of legal education.

Summertime and the livin’ is easy.

Summer associate class sizes might be shrinking, but for those law students lucky enough to make it into a summer program, life is good. The offers are being given out liberally, and the summer events are just as fun as ever.

Need proof? Just consider the six excellent events that we’ve selected for the finals of this year’s summer associate event contest. Some were cultural extravaganzas, others were athletic outings, but all were fun and fabulous. Thanks to everyone who submitted a nomination.

Vote below for your favorite. Without further ado, here they are:

In our recent offer rate round-up, we suggested that the summer associates of 2013 might be a bit… boring. Based on the dearth of juicy summer associate stories, the outgoing SAs don’t sound very fun.

That doesn’t mean, however, that they didn’t have fun this summer. They probably did — because as we know from prior years, Biglaw firms know how to put on great summer programs (which bear little resemblance to what life as an associate is like; you all know the old joke about summer programs).

This takes us to today’s topic: which law firm put on the best summer associate event of 2013?

If there’s one thing personal injury attorneys hate, it’s being called “ambulance chasers.” It’s a derogatory term that conjures up all of the bad that’s ever been associated with attorneys’ negligence practices, and ignores all of the good.

One innovative attorney has decided to embrace the “ambulance chaser” label. Just check out the car he drives, and you’ll see what we mean…

We often write about women’s woes when it comes to their representation in the legal profession. Not enough of them are being promoted to partner. Too many of them are being shoved into the pink ghetto of staff attorney hell. Far too few of them being admitted entry into the Biglaw Boys’ Club.

One law firm took special notice of the disparity, and decided to use it to its advantage in legal advertisements. The end result kind of looks like a cross between an ad for a high-class escort service and an ad for Charlie’s Angels LLP.

How does this firm measure up to its competition? Well, let’s start with 36-26-36…
