NALP, the National Association for Law Placement, announced yesterday its long-awaited timing guidelines for the 2010 legal recruiting season. After months of consideration, the association decided against setting specific dates before which offers could not be made, and settled on a modest change--a "28-day rolling response deadline for candidates not previously employed by the employer, and a November 1 response deadline for candidates who have been previously employed by the employer."
You can read the press release of the announcement here. That NALP's decision (see my February 21 post) followed "spirited" dialogue is reflected in this response from the Above the Law.
