The most helpful piece of data I've seen yet on TLS

http://pdfserver.amlaw.com/nlj/law%20sc ... page12.pdf

Someone linked this in a different thread and as an uniformed 0L I was pretty surprised about some of the stuff here. Does anyone know if the same data for the 2010 graduates is out? The PDF is dated Feb 22nd, 2010, so do we still have to wait a few weeks to get last year's info?

Also as a side note, what the heck do Yale Law grads actually do? 35.3% of the Yale Law graduates took jobs at one of the 250 largest law firms. Does half the class serve clerkships or something?! I don't have the numbers to apply to Yale, but I'm just curious.

A large number do clerkships, and many graduates work in very prestigious government offices or boutique firms (some of whose size would not qualify them for the AmLaw 250. Yale's low "biglaw" placement is largely a result of self-selection.

Here's a pdf that shows what else people do.

The data is old, but it helps answer your question about what Yale grads do. Answer: they clerk.
