I was reading one of the legal blogs in my Google Reader (Above the Law), and came across an article about why BigLaw (top firms) should get rid of their summer associate programs.

Mentioned in the article is the following sentence:
"Summering law students just had to avoid doing something epically stupid like jumping naked into the Hudson River."
The article then links to another article which details a bit more of the story.
