Horowitz Quoted in Oregon Daily Journal of Commerce About Summer Law Programs

Bookmark and Share

Lane Powell President Lewis Horowitz was quoted in the June 9 issue of Oregon Daily Journal of Commerce in the article “Got Summer Jobs? Well, Yes… And No.” The article discussed how many law firms are cutting back on their summer programs for law students — some eliminating them altogether. Horowitz discussed Lane Powell’s strategy when it comes to the Firm’s summer program and why the Firm chose to reduce the number of positions this year.

Lane Powell has retained its summer program, though it has reduced the number of participants to four. The recession hasn’t driven the change. Instead, the firm is filling openings with lateral hires of attorneys who already have a year or two of experience, according to President Lewis Horowitz. “… We never like to have more summer associates than we are sure we will need the following year, so perhaps we are more conservative in our summer programs than some other firms.”
