NLJ Releases School-by-School Data Behind its Rankings by BigLaw Jobs
For the first time ever, we are making all of the hiring data from our annual Go-To Law Schools special report available online. Search by law school (listed alphabetically by state) to find out which NLJ 250 firms hired their 2012 graduates. Search by firm to see where new associate hires were educated. And don’t miss the cost benefit analysis below.
See the complete Go-To Law Schools package for the ranking of our top 50 go-to schools, as well as schools ranked by firm favorites, tuition and associates promoted to partner, and a comparison to the U.S. News rankings.
Our rankings are based on survey responses from 190 of the largest 250 firms in the country by headcount, as well as additional data gathered from law firm websites. The full methodology is available here. Data was updated on Feb. 27.

What is interesting about the list of go to law schools is that two of the schools that Campos has been railing about -- Santa Clara and Rutgers-Camden -- make the go to biglaw list (developed by a neutral third party) while Campos' own University of Colorado does not make the Top 50.
