These rankings are based on feedback from 3,465 law students at 108 firms. Scores are based on responses in nine key areas, including interest level of the work, how much of it was “real,” training and guidance, interactions with partners and full-time associates, how well the firm communicated its goals, how accurately the firm portrayed itself in interviews, how it rated overall as a place to work, and the respondents’ inclination to accept a job if one were offered. All responses were scored on a 5-point scale, with 5 the highest score. For more information, see the methodology.
