    Hello everyone!

    The T14 law schools have decided to require law firms that recruit on campus to disclose if they require summer associates to enter into arbitration or non-disclosure agreements that would keep any allegations of workplace misconduct from going public. This is pretty impressive as less than a month ago we first read that a group of HLS students were starting a petition and seeking to get other T14 schools on board.

    We fully expect that no disclosures will be made and, instead, the law firms that previously required summer associates to sign such agreements will simply do away with them to avoid the embarrassment that would come from disclosure. We also expect these same pressures to ultimately bar the use of such agreements on full-time associates hired after graduation.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    It looks like our prediction in the previous post on May 16 may be dead wrong. The Recorder reports that at least five BigLaw firms are holding firm on requiring summer associates to agree to arbitration provisions for employment-related disputes. Most BigLaw firms are remaining mum to inquiries and surveys on the subject.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,
