The summer associate class at Baker Botts in Texas is smaller this year than it was in 2009, and summer associate Rocio Mendoza says that’s OK with her. Mendoza is coming back for a second summer at the Houston-based firm.

“Baker Botts has done a good job about being conservative with summer hiring and spelling out what they are looking for,” says Mendoza, a student at the University of Texas School of Law. “We are a total of 27 [students in Houston] this year,” she says. “Obviously, no one has a crystal ball about how things will end up, but you feel a lot better as a student coming in with that number than being one of 80.”
