Skadden Slashing 2010 Summer Class Size by Half
Skadden will hold its Summer associates program in 2010, but with less than half as many associates than in 2009.
The firm had 225 summers this year, but will only have about 100 in 2010. No 2010 offers will be rescinded — if more than 100 associates accept their offers, they all will participate.
As for the 2009 Summer class, whose start dates were deferred to 2011 in May, Skadden will offer jobs to 95%.
