The latest version of The American Lawyer‘s Summer Hiring Survey shows that large law firms extended 33 percent fewer job offers to their summer associates last year than they did the year before — a drop partially explained by the fact that summer classes were down across the board.

Among the 79 firms that responded to the survey, 1,791 summer associates received offers in 2010, compared to the 2,679 who got offers in 2009. Fifty-six firms made fewer offers to summer associates last year than they had in 2009, 16 made more, and seven made the same number.
