UBS Legal Summer Associate
« on: September 10, 2008, 08:57:28 PM »
Anyone have any info on the UBS Legal SA program?  Job description says position likely turns into admission for their full-time grad training program after graduation...anyone have info re that?   I thought Ibanks did not hire law school grads...

"Legapp" Stands for "Legal Application"

I don't know about their summer program, but I've heard the UBS legal dept. has been shedding staff like crazy.... since even before the stock market free fall.  The government investigation has apparently hit them hard (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/06/business/worldbusiness/06tax.html).  If you have other options, I would think twice.
I am officially a law school graduate : )

I bet they'll have some white collar work upcoming . . .
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .
