After months of economic woes, offer rates for 2Ls in some of Pennsylvania's largest firms are somewhat anemic this year when compared to 2008. Pepper Hamilton has confirmed that of the 14 summer associates in its program nationwide this year, seven received offers, compared with 30 out of 38 receiving offers last year. According to executive partner Robert Heideck, the firm has not yet decided whether it will push 2009 summer associates' start dates from 2010 to 2011, as some other firms have done.
