Should firms start the hiring season for law students later? (video)

Jay Grushkin, hiring partner at New York’s Milbank Tweed, talks with Bloomberg Law’s Lee Pacchia about how the hiring season has changed since the recession in BigLaw began in 2008. Elite law schools have moved their on-campus recruiting weeks earlier and earlier, in efforts to give their students the best chance at getting a job. That’s forced firms to extend job offers faster than before the recession began. He’d like to see recruiting move from August to January of a student’s second year, so firms have a better sense of their business needs.
