Law schools highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report tend to be fertile recruiting ground for Big Law, but some law schools transcend their U.S. News ranking when it comes to sending graduates to large firms. Here, we have highlighted the 20 law schools that did better at producing large firm associates than their U.S. News ranking would suggest.
