Smart New Jersey kids: Go to law school

The New Jersey Law Journal reports that first year associates at northern Jersey law firm McCarter & English will earn $135,000 starting in January.

And that just gets the firm in the running for the best new talent in the coming year, as other New Jersey firms are paying even more.

Topping the list is the Newark firm, Latham & Watkins, which hired six new associates this year and paid them an average $160,000!
