Once again, we offer a portfolio of the newest lawyers at New Jersey law firms, 406 recent arrivals who accepted our invitation to be featured in this, the Law Journal’s eighth annual magazine devoted to new associates. These attorneys, though not inclusive of all new associates in the state, are all based at New Jersey firms or at the New Jersey branches of multistate firms, and they form a large enough sampling to permit some valid observations. For one, they are very young. The 361 who revealed their ages average about 29 years old. What’s more, on a bell curve, most of them (278) fall within ages 25 through 31, and that subgroup averages at about 27 years old. The youth factor is paralleled by the recency of their law school graduations. Of the total, 101 finished law school this year, 108 last year and 47 in 2004. That means 256 � just under two thirds � are less than two years out of school. The same pattern showed up last year, and the conclusion now seems inescapable that firms are expressing a preference for recruiting associates directly out of law school or post-graduate judicial clerkships. While lateral hires still abound, they are decidedly in the minority. Firms would rather train young talent rather than lure seasoned laterals with portable skills and just as portable client portfolios. Comparing this year’s group to last, hiring appears to have been up sizably. We show a 24 percent increase in the number of new associates featured this year, from 327 to 406. This is pretty good evidence of a robust recruitment push among the firms participating, which are roughly the same as last year. As usual, these latest additions come from rich and diverse undergraduate studies and many boast graduate degrees or careers in other professions. They hail from here and there. Of those who gave us their birthplaces, 184 are New Jersey natives � about 45 percent. As in past years, a little more than half are from local law schools: 109 from Rutgers, 101 from Seton Hall. Despite their youth, they are well-accomplished individuals with strong skill sets, and they are no doubt assets to their firms and to our legal community. We welcome them and wish them success.
