Skadden to cut 2010 summer associates class by half

August 25, 2009 Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP is cutting the size of its summer associate class by half from 225 summer associates this year to only 100 next year in 2010.

Skadden is also adjusting its recruitment strategy by making all of its offers on a single day in late September, reports The Am Law Daily.

Some other US law firms -- including Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP and Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP -- have recently announced that they will not hire students for summer jobs in 2010.
