More Work, but Cocktails Too

Though we're far from the "nation's biggest law firms" I did read with interest a piece about Summer Associate programs from the June 27, 2006 WSJ. The article suggests that summer associates are getting more training and a little less big-scale entertaining.

The article discusses beefed-up mentoring programs, formal deposition training, mock trials, mock transactional projects and regimented writing tutorials. I think this is good for the profession...hopefully law schools will get the hint too.
