New Data on Summer 2020 Program Outcomes Now Available

NALP’s Report on the Survey of Legal Employers on 2020 Summer Outcomes and First-Year Associate Plans shows that despite the shift at law firms to virtual and shortened summer programs in 2020, offer and acceptance rates remained near or at historical highs, but summer program class sizes continued to shrink. The report includes information on the outcomes for 1Ls and 2Ls participating in summer programs, as well as the latest data on first-year associate start dates.

Information on OCI and Networking Platforms

In order to help employer and school members navigate the upcoming virtual OCI season, NALP is collecting information about which platforms schools will be using for OCI and virtual networking events.

Student Tips Videos

In partnership with LawFirmElearning, NALP's Developing the Professional Work Group is creating a series of "tips" videos for law students as they start their job searches and prepare to enter the workforce.
