Sidley Austin has announced its plans for the class of 2010. Some of the associates will be starting in January of 2011, with the remainder being deferred until January 2012. Yes, that’s a year and a half after graduation. All associates from the class of 2010 will receive health insurance from the firm beginning in June of 2010 and associates deferred until 2011 will draw a stipend beginning in January of 2010.
Presumably, setting fire to things in the meantime will not help.
