Merit list: law firms that offered jobs to 100% of summer associates

August 17, 2011 Above The Law has posted a list of firms that have offered jobs to 100 per cent of summer associates, readying themselves to start naming and shaming those firms that give lower-than-average offer rates.

The article acknowledges that there are plenty of reasons why a firm’s offer rate might be below 100 per cent, including poor performance by the associate, office politics, discrimination. But the publication reserves special disdain for firms with offer rates suggesting that their recruitment process is irresponsible.
