All that talk about law firms shifting their principal recruitment efforts toward lateral hires has apparently been unpersuasive in New Jersey. In this, the Law Journal‘s seventh annual New Associates Yearbook, hiring firms are exhibiting a preference for new blood. Most of the 327 lawyers featured in these pages are recent graduates or are coming off judicial clerkships. Of the total, 100 finished law school this year, 92 last year and 23 in 2004. That means 215 – about two thirds – are less than two years out of school. By comparison, only about 40 percent have had any postgraduate employment with law firms or law departments. One year’s roster of entrants is hardly a trend, but the pattern is clear at least in this year’s class, and by the looks of it, the penchant for green recruits has risen markedly, both at New Jersey-based firms and at N.J. branches of multistate firms. The in-vogue recipe for growth, it seems, is to bulk up with young talent and set out to make them profitable, rather than to lure seasoned laterals with portable skills and just as portable client portfolios. Notably, only a scant number of new hires completed summer clerkships at the firms that ultimately made them offers, a sign perhaps that summer associates are no longer the prime pool for recruitment. Judicial clerkships, on the other hand, were the source of a robust 43 percent of the new associate hires. As usual, these latest additions come from rich and diverse undergraduate studies and many boast graduate degrees or careers in other professions. And, as in past years, about half are from local law schools: 80 from Seton Hall and 84 from Rutgers. Finally, the number of associates in this yearly book has held steady at over 300 for the past three years – anecdotal evidence to be sure, but evidence nonetheless that there’s no slackening of the New Jersey law firm economy. We welcome these bright young people to the Garden State legal community and wish them all success. Ronald J. Fleury Editor in Chief Bethany A.
