WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
ZOOM CLERKSHIP – Law firms are still wooing their summer associates amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but as Meredith Hobbs reports, the schmoozing and fun is mostly happening virtually these days. Fancy lunches and boozy happy hours have been replaced with online cooking classes, improv sessions, and virtual escape rooms. Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton even had its summer associates paint individual sections of a mural that will be installed in a VA hospital in New Jersey. It’s not all fun and games, though. This year’s summer associates are also handling legal assignments, meeting with partners, and sitting in on firm conferences, primarily through Zoom. But law firm leaders acknowledge that interacting across computer screens can’t fully replicate the traditional in-person experience summer associates usually receive.
