NY Bar retracts recent deferred associate survey

The New York Bar had to retract a recent report on the deferred associates experiences at public interest organizations. The initial report came to the conclusion that most of the deferred associates were unhappy with their placement and experience with public interest attorneys. The unrevised report highlighted a “culture gap” that the deferred associates felt with the organizations they were placed with.

However, after reviewing the data, it became clear that the NY Bar was a bit off. In a complete reversal, the NY Bar came to a new conclusion that most deferred associates were “largely happy with their placement.” The full, new and accurate report can be found here.
