Associate Dean of Career Services Susan Robinson is quoted in a Seattle Post-Intelligencer story about a San Francisco law firm's struggle for survival:

The firm delayed start dates, to January from October, for incoming first-year associates who graduated from Stanford Law School, said Susan Robinson, the school's associate dean for career services. The firm has an 80-person office in Menlo Park, Calif., and a 147-person San Francisco office. It hired one Stanford grad to start this fall, she said.

"There is some sense that (going out of business) is where things are headed, though it could be they're still negotiating or trying to figure out what to do," Robinson said.
