If there's one thing most lawyers and law students love, it's trivia. Can you blame us? Being prepared with little-known facts is invaluable for awkward networking events or game nights with friends from your cohort. The Vault Law team loves trivia so much, we asked law firm associates to share some fun facts about their law firms via our annual Law Firm Associate Survey. From ping pong tournaments to tuna salad, the responses didn't disappoint. Below are some interesting tidbits shared by associates who work at the top 10 Vault Law 100 firms—read on to see if any facts surprise you.
Vault Law's 2022 quality of life, diversity, and summer associate program rankings are here, and McDermott Will & Emery’s associates have spoken loud and clear: The firm has claimed the No. 1 spot in the 2022 Overall Rankings of the Best Law Firms to Work For, the Best Law Firms for Diversity, and the Best Summer Associate Programs.
The most frequent question we receive from law students and fledgling attorneys is how to differentiate among legal practice areas. Launching your legal career with confidence can be difficult if you're not sure what each practice area entails and what kinds of tasks you'd tackle in certain areas.
If you are a 1L, don't miss this chance to hear from experts at top law firms as they discuss legal careers, law school advice, and diversity initiatives!
It’s never too early to start planning for your legal career—even if you are only in the first semester of your 1L year.
