Mixed messages about future of law firm hiring?

While at first blush these two stories would suggest so - compare Expert Warns of Law Firm Overcapacity and 'Further Timekeeper Cuts' with Legal Recruiters See More Hiring, But Laid-Off Associates Aren't in Demand - upon a closer look they're consistent.  If you can immediately add to the firm's bottom line, you'll get hired.  But the days of hiring scads of new law grads while the firms patiently wait for them to develop practical skills aren't coming back soon.
