Your BIGLAW office...
« on: August 23, 2004, 02:58:38 PM »
Hey All,


Any ideas as to what a typical entry-level associate, fresh-out-of law school, can look forward to in the way of his or her office at a large firm? You see alot of lawyer's offices in movies and they look pretty damn nice (granted, they are usually characters with many years of experience). Any one with personal exposure to a new associate's dwellings?

A friend of mine is a first year associate at a large, not a Vault 100, firm in NYC.  I stopped by to pick her up for lunch one day; she gave me the "tour".  She shares an office that is barely 8 by 11.  The flickery glow of flourescent bulbs detracts from the already ugly off-white walls.  Bulky, ugly and low-quality desks fill the office. 

Biglaw associate offices are really, really small law offices.

All the attorney offices at my firm have windows. The new associates have fairly small offices, an aeron chair, normal desk, small closet/cabinet thing and a small shelf. I think they can choose to have either a desktop of a laptop and a docking station.
