“[There are] several firm-organized social events per year, which are excellent! Lawyers socialize outside of these events as we wish.”
“Our firm is very friendly. The firm wants people to stay and make their careers here. The lawyers socialize quite a bit. Over the holidays, there are lots of firm-organized happy hours and holiday parties, and over the summer when the summer associates are here there are constant events and mixers and happy hours to attend. Other than that, there aren't many firm-organized events, but the lawyers themselves plan and hang out with each other (and the support staff) often. I personally get lunch with the other first year associates each Friday (schedule permitting).
“The lawyers in each section often get lunch/drinks together. It really feels like a family and it is also encouraging because it shows me that people here like to work together and want to spend more time together even after they do work together all day or all week.”
