Excess of Democracy: Ranking Law Schools by Elite Employment Outcomes, by Derek Muller (Pepperdine):
Thanks to the new granular employment data reported by law schools to the American Bar Association, we can try to evaluate student outcomes by a variety of metrics. I thought I'd try to rank schools by "elite employment outcomes" from the Class of 2012 data. This ranking looks at two employment figures: full-time, long-term bar passage-required employment in firms of 101 or more attorneys; and federal clerkships. ... I included the forty-two schools with at least 15%. (Also of note: fifteen schools had less than 1% of their graduates obtain elite employment outcomes.)
Here are the Top 10 law schools by elite employment outcomes:
