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 nine 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.
We are now in the middle of the 2017 hireback season. So, in the coming weeks, we’ll be updating the chart below as firms report their numbers. 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 Sissi Wang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
