Apparently, this former Coleman Legal Staffing clown didn't get the memo. Biglaw won't be bringing in Native American Indians to do the work, but rather will be outsourcing all the work to Indians on the Indian subcontinent.
"Firms aren't going to go back to the same level of hiring for partner-track associates. Firms still need to hire for the traditional associate track because they will be future leaders of the firm, Robert Nourian said, but there won't be as much of that hiring.
Instead, firms will focus on staff lawyers with credentials maybe only half a step below the traditional associate level to help in a support capacity.
'There's chiefs and there's Indians,' Nourian said. 'Somewhere down the pyramid you can have some folks who maybe aren't Ivy League grads.'"
