  1. I would say one out of two, would be a better accurate ratio. Unofficially, many law firms only hires back 1/2 articling students. It is a question of presentation. Marketing As an articling student, you have to demonstrate your value during the 10 months.
  2. There's no good and bad paths ! Everyone has his/her own career path depending on short-term and long-term goals and individual progress. Sometimes, it just happens like that. Some lawyers started in litigation in "BIG FIRMS" and after a few years, switched to "IN HOUSE" ...and vice-versa. Some lawyers went back to litigation for a second time, others started their own law firms! Moral of the story: A career path doesn't need to follow a straight line. There's no blueprint or timetable for climbing the career ladder. P.S. It is NOT recommended to change employer every 1-2 years as a lawyer for a small salary increase. A certain stability is a +.
