They had their in-person interviews last month and gave a few offers ~3 weeks ago so I would not hold out hope. =/

Has anyone heard from them recently? I'm assuming they're just wrapping up everything at this point with people they've already interviewed.

+1 on this. my feeling is that since they only have 1-2 1L positions for each office, offers have likely already gone out. we might have a chance if anyone declines their offer and they start going down the list, but for now it seems bleak..


has anyone received an offer from latham yet??


I haven't heard of anyone, but since it's such a small class, they might not be active on TLS/I likely don't know them. Anyone else hear anything?


someone I know got an offer from their NY office last week.


Can you tell us school or tier and whether they are accepting? Thanks!

Not OP (x2) - was told decisions will be made this week, but I believe that was for non LCLD positions.

Heard all Latham offers have gone out. I haven't received a formal ding yet but pretty sure it's coming. Still worth it to go to their diversity weekend if I'm not working for them this summer and don't really want to as a 2L?

Yes. It’s all expenses paid and a great networking opportunity. You never know who you will meet that could help you reach your goals, even if at another firm.

Sorry to hear, though it's such a shitshow for these diversity programs. Much less about merit and much more about whether you're the right type of "diversity" they're looking for. They've literally got boxes to check off, rank stack candidates for each of those boxes, and go on to the next "diversity type fit" candidate on the list if one turns them down. So it's all bullshit really and dings do not reflect your inherent ability. Honestly, now that I know how law firms hire, if I were hiring law firms I would look carefully at their junior associates to make sure they're worth they're billable hours.

Wondering how many people got picked to go to Latham's diversity conference. Kirkland also has one but it seems like only 20-30 people were picked

What makes them less qualified?
