Some WI Firms Cancel, Reduce Summer Associate Programs

From the Wisconsin Law Journal:

Though large firms around the country have been cancelling their summer associate programs, the trend had yet to hit in Wisconsin.
Until now.
Milwaukee-based Quarles & Brady LLP confirmed that they have “suspended” their 2010 summer associate program…
Though Quarles is the only firm in the state so far to confirm its cancellation of the 2010 summer program, others have shortened their programs or reduced the number of hires.
Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren SC trimmed its program from 12 to 10 weeks this year, and Godfrey & Kahn SC went from 12 weeks to nine.
