BigLaw’s Scramble to Hire the Best
July 3 (Bloomberg Law) — Jay Grushkin, hiring partner at New York’s Milbank Tweed, talks with Bloomberg Law’s Lee Pacchia about how the hiring season has changed in “BigLaw” since the recession began in 2008. Elite law schools have moved their on-campus recruiting earlier and earlier to give their students the best chance at getting a job. That’s forced firms to extend job offers faster than before the recession began. He’d like to see recruiting move from August of a student’s second year to January, so firms have a better sense of their business needs.
