Yale Law Students Protest Paul Weiss Recruiting Event

Paul Weiss, you can’t hide. We can see your greedy side.

As long as you work for Exxon, we won’t work for you.

— students at Yale Law School yelled these chants during a Paul Weiss boycott outside the firm’s first-year recruitment reception at the elite school yesterday. Students are targeting Paul Weiss for its representation of ExxonMobil, claiming that the firm has aided the oil and gas company in “decades of disinformation to obstruct climate action.” Last month, students at Harvard Law protested at a Paul Weiss recruitment event, demanding that the firm drop Exxon as a client.
