Law firm recruiting partners see a promising future for would-be associates

Legal firms are searching for fresh talents across the country. They have started recruiting second-year law students to fill next summer's associate classes. Gibson Dunn with 117 associates in 2011 expects to hire 10 to 15 percent more summer associates for 2012. Weil, Gotshal & Manges plans to make a 54 percent increase from the 65 second-year students in 2011 to 100 in 2012. The American Lawyer's latest Summer Hiring Survey shows a positive attitude for summer 2012 hiring. According to the survey, the average 2011 summer class size has increased 25 percent over 2010 at 100 leading law firms, which is up 36 percent to an average of 76.3 associates. The on-campus interview season is kicked off by a new website called JD Match which has over 1,000 students and seven top law firms registered on it already.
