Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms, 2018 Edition LATHAM & WATKINS LLP © 2017 Inc. 128 UPPERS • “Great spirit and culture” • “Transparent management” • “Little face-time requirement” DOWNERS • “Billable hour pressure” • “Unpredictability of schedule” • “Intense client demands” NOTABLE PERKS “The first firm to partner with a financial institution to offer student loan refinancing for its associates. The program is phenomenal. While other firms have followed suit, the fact that LW was the first to offer such a program gives me confidence that the firm cares and is willing to consider new and innovative offerings.” • “Any associate can spend up to $250 on business development activities—dinner, drinks, golf, etc.—any time they want. We have been encouraged to use this privilege not just with actual in-house lawyers, but also with our law school friends, who may one day become in-house lawyers, and other members of target client companies who may be able to connect us with in-house attorneys. This is a great perk and a great way to get young associates integrated into the larger business community.” SURVEY SNAPSHOT Among our survey respondents at Latham: • 56% were junior associates, 27% were mid-level associates, and 16% were senior associates • 62% were former summer associates, 23% were hired as lateral associates, and 3% were hired during or after a clerkship.

    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.
