Jessica Pecoraro Quoted in Minnesota Lawyer about Associate Recruitment
October 3, 2013
In the article Jessica shares that Maslon finds "the pool of available associates to be filled to the brim," and that "all of the students at the University of Minnesota’s recent on-campus interviews met the firm's criteria—good grades, good writing skills, well-rounded and with some law background as a clerk or a paralegal." She adds, "We don’t hire a big class and see who’s standing at the end of the summer." The article reports that offers were made to all four of Maslon's 2013 Summer Associates and notes that Maslon dedicates a lot of resources to the summer classes, explaining "Each associate has three mentors to each summer associate—a writing mentor, an associate mentor, and a partner."
