Law firms spend too much money on late-night parties, expert says

July 25, 2008 A career expert has some advice for law firms running summer associate programs: Spend less money on late-night parties and more on training and mentoring programs.

Writing for the National Law Journal, Lauren Stiller Rikleen said she has heard too many tales of summer associates who feel pressured to attend after-event parties where the alcohol flows freely. Law students who want to secure an offer for a $160,000 full-time job after graduation don’t want to miss out on the chance for socializing and don’t want to be labeled as “not being fun,” she says.
