Chadbourne & Parke told half of its incoming associates on Monday that the firm will extend their deferrals indefinitely and pay them an additional stipend of $60,000, according to a firm spokesman.

The news first appeared on Above the Law, and a firm spokesman confirmed the accuracy of the report.

About half the class will start on that date, while the other half now has no certain starting date.
