The morning breakfast spread is great and saves time, while the afternoon ‘cookie time’ provides a great opportunity to unwind and socialize for a few minutes. They have made more of an effort to provide healthier options, including yogurt and cereal in the mornings and fruit and veggies at cookie time.” • “Willkie Farr holds monthly informal gatherings in a large conference room with an upscale bar and a variety of food. Perhaps most telling about the firm is that the juniors don’t feel pressured to be overly formal at these events, even when surrounded by senior attorneys. We’re instead allowed to be ourselves, unwind, and have fun.” SURVEY SNAPSHOT Among our survey respondents at Willkie: • 58% were junior associates, 23% were mid-level associates , and 19% were senior associates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
