Morris Manning Axes Fall Interviews--and 2010 Summer Program


It doesn’t look like the economy is likely to improve significantly anytime soon.

So Morris Manning & Martin is eliminating on-campus law school interviews this fall, “which of course means that we do not plan to have a formal summer program next summer,” writes managing partner Robert Saudek in an internal e-mail published by Above the Law.

Before making new hires, the firm needs to make sure its existing attorneys are busy, he writes. And, in when it does come time to hire more lawyers, the 175-attorney Atlanta-based firm is likely to have plenty of well-qualified laterals and third-year students to consider, given the number of offers to incoming associates that are being rescinded.
