Sarah Gribbin Quoted in NJLJ Article Discussing Growth Among Law Firm’s Summer Associate Programs

Archer partner and Hiring Committee chair Sarah A. Gribbin was recently quoted in the New Jersey Law Journal article, “Pay Climbs Steadily, Hiring Levels Return to Pre-COVID Form at Law Firm Summer Associate Programs.” The article recognizes a national trend of growth among law firm’s summer associate programs. It discusses how hiring has fully returned to pre-pandemic levels, along with in-person elements and average compensation on their upward trajectory.

Sarah acknowledges Archer’s efforts to return to pre-pandemic status, stating the program, “has been conducted primarily in-person, with remote working days available each week… Archer attorneys have enjoyed getting to see and interact with the Summer Associates in the office several times a week. We have been encouraging the Summer Associates to visit as many Archer offices as they want to throughout the summer. Our Summer Associates have enthusiastically welcomed these in-person opportunities.” She went on to say the program, “includes a number of in-person training sessions, observation opportunities and practice group presentations, with remote participation optional for each event… We also have hosted several in-person social events with several more scheduled.”
