Womble Carlyle - The National Jurist: Best Law Firms

www.wcsr.com [cached]

Bill Seaton, founder of EmplawyerNet, an Internet-based legal career Web site, doesn't think there is such a thing as a best law firm.

"I don't think there is a best firm, objectively," he said.
...
But Seaton pointed out that when law students are selecting a firm fresh out of law school, they might not even be there long enough for partnership chances to matter.
"NALP has found out that the average lawyer is going to have three jobs in their first seven years," he said.
...
Some turnover is unavoidable, Seaton said.
"I don't think you are going to find a law firm that doesn't have a significant amount of turnover, but while 20 to 25 percent a year is common, anything over that should make you wonder," he said.
Seaton advised students to find out as much as they can about associate satisfaction and retention levels.Look at the statistics not just for the last year or two, but five or 10 years, and compare firms in the same city or practice area.If one firm shows spikes when the other firms are stable, it might be better to steer clear.Those associates probably left for a reason, he said.
...
Seaton warned not to get lulled into a false sense of security if a firm's required hours seem low.
"They are all sweatshops," he said.
...
It's no secret that with the exception of clinical programs, the typical law school does little to prepare students to actually practice law, Seaton said.That means it's important to consider how much time and money a firm is willing to invest in on-the-job training of new associates, he said.
"In your first few years of work the most important thing to you is to gain advanced training," he said."My questions would focus on what the training program is, and is there a formal training program.If there is not a training program, in my mind that would raise a red flag."
Seaton said students should look for a firm that will help them build a solid foundation in the law that they can use to their advantage.
"That buys you the ability to sell that expertise wherever you want to go," he said.

"That buys you the ability to sell that expertise wherever you want to go," he said.
...
After weighing all these factors, and deciding which are most important to them, there is still another step students should take, said Seaton - they should ask around about the firm.
"Ask your professors, career services department, attorney in the practice area or city," he said."Just find out what people think of the firms you are interested in."
But he warned that students need to be prepared to recognize bias.
"Be objective enough to realize that somebody is going to say something negative about every firm," he said.
