This is objectively incorrect for law schools. Hastings is better known in the CA legal community (i.e. not the typical TLS reader or prospective law student) out of all these options because it's been around much longer, and was ranked significantly higher than it is now until relatively recently. Outside the law, you might be right that Davis is better known due to its large undergrad campus.

You got me curious: how many 2Ls are going the firm route this summer?


31 firms are listed and I know some of the firms have taken on more than one 2L so that is over half the class.

31 firms ain't bad, but you realize just because a firm shows up, doesn't mean they're taking anyone for the summer? 31 firms could all be after the same 10 students (who split among the 5 firms, so multiple students per firm).

I'm not saying my hypothesis is any better (or worse) than yours, I was just looking for more specific stats (number of students at NLJ250 firms, or something). If you don't have those, nothing wrong with that, I certainly don't have that data for my school's 2Ls. Just the way you phrased the post I was responded to made me think that data might be floating around.


31 firms are listed as having hired at least 1 2L for the summer - this is a list of placements - a number were gained outside of OCI.

Ah, thanks. That is good info.
