Employers begin on-campus interviews (OCI) this week at five of Texas’ nine American Bar Association-accredited law schools, primarily in search of 2011 summer associates. At least four of the largest firms in Texas say they plan to hire more summer associates for 2011 than they did this year.
“We’re going to have a bigger” summer program in 2011, says Vinson & Elkins hiring partner Tom Leatherbury. “We’re going to have a total firmwide program that we hope is about 20 to 25 larger in 2Ls,” he says. “What that means in Texas is that we’re going from 60 in Texas to about 80 in Texas,” he says, referring to the number of summer associates.
