More on Law School Rankings by Graduates in BigLaw Jobs

Legal Education | Permalink


These rankings are interesting, mainly to see the proportions of top tier grads who go into BigLaw. As an aside, it also might be interesting to see, ten or so years down the road, what proportion of dissatisfied lawyers this grouping comprises. But at a different level, it is quite misleading to label this survey the “Goto Law Schools.” “Goto” only if your life-goal is to work in BigLaw, or if you absolutely, positively have to make $160k/year to pay off your student loans. Many grads of top schools, including the Yale grads, prefer RealLaw, including public service, non-profit, and regional law firm employment.
