We’ve ranked the top 50 law schools by percentage of 2017 juris doctors who took jobs at the largest 100 firms by lawyer head count—as identified in The National Law Journal’s annual survey of the nation’s 500 largest law firms. We also identified the schools that saw the most alumni promoted to partner, and highlighted the 20 schools that outperform their U.S. News & World Report ranking when it comes to large firm hiring. And for the sixth year in a row, we’ve made all the data from our report available to explore in this interactive graphic.
METHODOLOGY: Data for this Go-To Law Schools special report were provided to The National Law Journal by the largest 100 firms in the country. For firms that did not submit new associate numbers, we relied on data from ALM Media LLC’s RivalEdge database and independent reporting. The rankings do not reflect law graduates who took jobs as judicial clerks following graduation.
