Correction In the Summer Associates supplement, which was inserted in the Monday, June 9, edition of The Legal, statistics concerning Cozen O’Connor’s summer associate class were incorrect due to a clerical error by the firm. Cozen O’Connor should have been listed as having three summer associates from Temple University Beasley School of Law, four from Villanova University School of Law and none from Widener University Law School. This change also affects the chart on Page 19 of the supplement with the headline “Where Associates Go to Law School.” Temple now has 35 law students at responding Philadelphia area firms, Villanova has 32 and Widener has one.
