Robby Reeb Quoted in ‘Texas Lawyer’ on Transition From Student to Associate

October 29, 2014 | Mentions

Jackson Walker associate Robby Reeb was quoted in a recent Texas Lawyer article about the 2014 class of first-year associates at Texas’ largest firms.

The article, titled “New Associates Discuss the Unexpected Changes of Going from Student to Associate,” appeared in the Oct. 27, 2014, edition of the magazine as part of Texas Lawyer‘s annual report on new associate hires. In addition to survey data, the report included several associates’ responses to the question: “What is an unexpected change you’ve experienced in the transition from student to full-time lawyer?”

“Time flies,” Mr. Reeb said. “Law school is a generally passive environment, where sitting and listening in class can make minutes feel like hours. The work environment is far more active, with each day bringing new challenges and problems to solve. Some workdays feel shorter than a commercial paper class ever did.”
