This might be of interest to some people, although, of course, each report is only as good as its response rate:

You have to be very suspicious of anybody who is willing to go to shady lengths in order to be head of a student organization.  It really isn't that serious.  It supposed to be a position of service.  If they really feel that passionately about serving their fellow students that hats off to 'em, but if they're thinking this is something to put on the resume then they're wasting their time.

Just checking in as usual. If some of you are the same cats that were applying from the 2005 cycle (2Ls now), hello! So, tonight I just found out that I've been named the next Chief Notes & Comments Editor of my law journal! I'm super excited to earn a top 6 position and hopefully (aside from the fact that I like my journal) put me in a better position for a federal clerkship.  :) Hope you all are doing well.

PS Anyone heard from Mobell or BlkReign lately?

Good Times for 2Ls
Posted by Ashby Jones

Law Blog readers, we put it to you: Has there ever been a better time to be a second-year law student?

Why do we ask? According to an article in the National Law Journal, several of the nation’s top law firms are hiring more summer associates for the upcoming season, with a few bringing aboard significantly greater numbers of would-be lawyers than in years past.

Take Kirkland & Ellis. The firm is boosting its summer associate ranks by 19.9% in 2007, to a total of 229 students, says the NLJ. Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, the 1,915-attorney New York firm, says it’s expecting 292 summer associates, an increase of 35.2% compared with 2006. “We had a great recruiting year, we have lots of work and there’s room for everyone,” said Carol Sprague, legal hiring director at Skadden.

What accounts for the boom? According to the NLJ, it’s partly due to an explosion in business at big law firms, many of whom are reporting record growth for 2006.

Meanwhile, the firms are having to search high and low to find the newbies. Law schools continue to churn out about the same number of graduates: some 40,000 each year. Meanwhile, the number of applicants is dropping, by 6.3% last year and by 5.2% the year before, according to the Law School Admission Council.

That means good news for a bunch of law schools, like Northeastern’s law school, which for the first time welcomed the firm now known as K&L Gates, Chicago’s Seyfarth Shaw and New York’s Proskauer Rose. Dechert paid an inaugural visit to the University of Pittsburgh law school. Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft also collected resumes for the first time at the school.

In other words, 2Ls rock 8).
