We’ll have to wait and see how offer rates shake out to judge how much worse it turned out for someone to graduate law school in, say, 2009 versus 2012, but we can say this for sure: The more we learn, the clearer it becomes that large law firms are going to increase summer class sizes a year from now.

Last week, we told you that Cravath, Swaine & Moore, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, Jones Day and others plan to recruit more summers for 2011 than they did for this summer. The 2011 class sizes at those firms won’t reach the go-go levels of 2008 or 2007, but they will represent a major improvement from this summer.
