According to a JDJournal tipster, Denver-based international law firm Holme Roberts & Owen is deferring its entire incoming class of associates for 12 months.
Our tipster reports:
3Ls were informed of this YESTERDAY [4/6], when less than 2 months ago they were told that they would be starting this fall in October. Firm will pay minuscule stipend of $15,000 for the year. Bar fees and cost of study course will not be covered.
A number of strings are attached to the stipend.
We are FUCKED. Sources inside the firm suggest that management was sitting on this information for weeks.
