1L Recruit Question

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I applied to the 1L recruit and I have a question about the process. I know call day is Feb 22. But do firms contact you before that with ITC or is the first time they contact you on Feb 22?

Thank you!

I applied as well. I believe we are going to get ITCs and/or PFOs but I could be wrong.

Not sure if it will be this week but I believe most firms will send out something prior to the 22. Hopefully someone who is more experienced with the recruiting process on this forum will be able to provide a concrete answer.

Most firms will send ITCs before call day (anytime between now and the day before call day). There might be a few that don’t but the vast majority do.

I knew they did this for the 2L recruit, I just wasn't sure if they also did for the 1L

Here is the topic from last year, to give some sense of which firms reach out when.

For timing comparison, applications were due January 22 last year.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but are ITCs sent via email? Are we expected to reply to ITCs?

How does call day work? Is the purpose of call day to schedule interviews?

I can only speculate but i do believe ITCs will come via e-mail.

According to LSO site on first year positions - feb 22 call day is to schedule an interview.

Not a stupid question! This is weird process! Boundless is correct. ITCs are sent via email and I don’t think you’re expected to reply to ITCs (I didn’t reply to any of mine). 

On call day, firms will call you at 8:00 am to schedule your interview. The entire process should be over by 8:15 am.

ITCs will always be sent by email since the firms aren't actually allowed to call you until 8am on call day. I think it's not a bad idea to respond with something simple along the lines of "thanks very much! I'm looking forward to it". That won't hurt, but I doubt it's make or break. If you do send a response, I wouldn't expect them to reply back to you. If I recall, I did respond to ITCs when I went through it.

    • What even is a "good" lawyer? How can we deliberate over if "good" lawyers are born or made, if even within legal academia, the model of what a "good " lawyer is, is still actively being explored and contested. The answer truly depends on who you ask. 
    • Yeah, North America in 2021, what an awful place to be. Get some perspective for fuck’s sake. You remind me of the guys that work in construction and think safety should be treated as an afterthought. Have you ever considered  why you have the ability to express yourself so freely whereas elsewhere you wouldn’t? 
    • I don't know why I'm continuing to engage, but fuck it.  You were mocked (correctly) for making some very strange claims about genetics. I understand why you would take issue with that. No one likes to be mocked. But are non-lawyers being mocked here? I don't think so. I think it's just an objective assessment that lawyers do tend to have the qualities normally associated with intelligence.  I think that many lawyers are more intelligent than the average person. But that's not a value judgment. The particular kind of intelligence needed for law is valuable for practicing law effectively. But outside of being useful for practice, I accord it very little weight. I like and admire many people who aren't especially good communicators, and probably don't have the attention to detail for law. I know many lawyers who are very smart and excellent at lawyering, but who I do not particularly like or admire. Intelligence is just one thing. There are other qualities that are far more important. I care far more about a person's compassion, sense of humour, and self-awareness than whether they can write a persuasive brief. So when I say that law isn't a good fit for most, I don't mean it as smug or an insult. I just mean that law isn't a good fit for everyone. 
    • yo man relax. who hurt u? You might think we're insulting you, but your manner of speaking is very condescending. The fact that you posted and deleted comments (twice!) suggests that you know this, so stop pretending like everyone is 'taking a dump' on you. On topic: there's smart and not-so-smart people in every profession. In the case of law, medicine or PhD-level scientific academia, the floor is likely higher since you had to jump through some hoops to get there that are somewhat reliable indices of some intellectual capacity. Maybe everyone could theoretically be trained as a lawyer or doctor, but you'd probably have some pretty bad ones by the end.
    • You got there pretty early, then. I needed to collect a few STEM degrees and see how many of my peers ended up getting jobs where all they did was mix buffers and run assays that come in a box that are closer to following a basic recipe than developing an mRNA based vaccine. Fortunately, the inherent superiority of their biochem degrees and the fact that they had to learn electrochem material that they probably haven't thought about since halfway through undergrad continue to provide solace.
