Since 2009, Precedent has tracked the number of articling students Toronto law firms have hired back as first-year associates — and called it the Hireback Watch.
In the interactive chart below, you can toggle between the past eight years and sort the hireback data in each column. If you click on any firm names, you’ll see its numbers from over the years.
See below the chart to find out how we calculate the data and how we have handled law-firm mergers over the years.
When hireback season is upon us, in the spring, we’ll update the chart with a new batch of numbers. So check back often and follow us on Facebook and Twitter, where we announce every update to the chart.
If you’d like to add your firm to the Hireback Watch, please email Daniel Fish at email@example.com.
