The Go-To Law Schools report ranks the top 50 law schools by percentage of 2021 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.
Data for this special report was provided to Law.com by the largest 100 firms in the country. For firms that did not submit new associate numbers, we relied on data from ALM’s RivalEdge database and independent reporting. The rankings do not reflect law graduates who took jobs as judicial clerks following graduation, nor do they include 2021 LL.M. graduates.
