2L Summer Employment
Some students will work for more than one employer during their 2L summer, typically spending between six to eight weeks with each employer. Over the past five years an average of 28% of second-year students split their summer between two employers. For additional information about splitting the summer, consult CDO’s brochure To Split or Not to Split, That is the Question. Some firms offer students the opportunity to work for the firm for part of the summer and a public interest organization for the other part, with the firm paying the student’s entire summer salary. See CDO’s brochure Firms Sponsoring Split Public Interest Summers for additional information about this unique split summer option. The majority of second year students who summer with law firms obtain permanent employment offers from their second summer employers.
