What about training for solos & small firms?

By Yves Faguy October 18, 2013 18 October 2013

Carolyn Elefant at My Shingle wants law schools to do a better job at preparing students for the solo & small legal market:

Back in the day, most schools prepped attorneys to work at big law – but those jobs are gone for good.  Likewise, most government employers, which can hire big law cast offs with several years of experience, won’t touch new grads.  With the rising popularity of the “future of law,” the cool kids – like Axiom command lots of attention as the next big thing but I’ve got news for you: those guys can cherry-pick top talent (which is, after all their business model); if they deign to hire your new grads, it will be to support marketing or data analytics, not to practice law.

So, hate to break it to you, law schools, but you’re stuck with employers like me: solo and small firms who are the face of today’s legal employers. Maybe we don’t have the resources to hire your students long term or for much pay, but at the very least, we’re a safe harbor where they can gain valuable experience before they move on to a more permanent and stable position.
