A new group of more than 100 law students from several of the nation’s most prominent schools has asked law firms on the AmLaw 100 to sign on to a set of principles designed to improve working conditions at law firms. Students Building a Better Legal Profession, first reported by the Wall Street Journal‘s law blog, has called for law firms to reduce billable hour requirements, implement balanced hours and make their expectations of attorneys clear. The group’s letter also said that its members would be willing to work for less money in exchange for improved conditions. It also said that prior to the fall interviewing season it will post a list of firms that have and have not signed on to the principles. Group members include law students from Yale Law School, Stanford Law School, New York University School of Law, and University of California, Berkeley, School of Law.
