Anyone want to take a stab at whether this is the job market, a glut of lawyers, or some combination of that? Think it'll be better in 3 and a half years?
I agree... but I think that not getting a summer gig anywhere is going to still keep it tough to find 3L gigs. Some firms are going to be oversubscribed this summer, some clients will go under, some firms will not do so well, and so there will be plenty of top students job hunting for 3L year. Also, lots of people aren't thrilled with where they're winding up this summer. I think that it'll shake out a bit, but it won't be some some sort of job free-for-all, and people without firm gigs will be at a huge disadvantage.
