Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom had people talking last month when the firm announced it would make all of its job offers on one day in late-September, abandoning its usual practice of offering 2Ls summer associate positions on a rolling basis throughout the fall.

Skadden’s recruiters told us the all-in-one-day strategy was in response to law schools pushing up on-campus interviewing to August and early September. Skadden figured if recruitment at the top schools was finished by mid-September, it may as well make its offers as soon as it was over — and make them all at once. The firm set Sept. 22 as “Skadden Offer Day.”
