Law School Premier League And Championship League Rankings

Bill Henderson (Indiana) notes that Jae Um, in her bracketing exercise for The American Lawyer, arrays the 2022 AmLaw 100 based on the structure of the English football league system: the Top 22 firms in the Premier League (Wachtell to Goodwin) and the next 23 firms in the Championship League (Sidley to Shearman), all hoping to be promoted to Premier League.
