Hal M. Stewart, former chief operating officer/executive director for two international Am Law 100 firms, writes: Choosing one among several (law firm) offers to accept can be one of the most important career decisions that a 2L law school student will make, as the summer associate program is the initial step in being hired by a law firm. This decision is equally important to 2L students who pursue summer associate programs with medium and small size firms, in-house legal departments, government agencies, non-profit organizations or with the judiciary. There are many steps a 2L should consider while making this decision.
