Morgan Lewis Hires Less Than 30 Percent of Summers

Posted by Matt Straquadine

Morgan Lewis & Bockius has offered full time jobs to just 28 percent of its summer associates, according to sibling publication The Legal Intelligencer. Those who did receive offers will be deferred until fall 2011. 

The firm offered full-time jobs to just 28 of 102 eligible 2Ls working in its offices across the country. Morgan Lewis will provide those students not hired with a letter that can be made available to other prospective employers, explaining that being passed over is "not necessarily" a reflection on the student’s performance.

This move is the latest in Morgan Lewis's many efforts to manage staff in response to the recession. In July the firm announced it was canceling its 2010 summer associate program altogether; this came after the firm was among the first of The Am Law 200 to defer this year's incoming first-year associates for another year.
