Would also be helpful to know the exact distribution of the people under the final reported salary, for example the "purple bar" for Michigan of those making less than $145k - how many of those are making $40-60K AKA shitlaw jobs :?

This information isn't given out since all that is given are the quartiles and what percentage of the class it applies to.

Wow, amazing...

Also "other firms" can mean anything...

In general should I rank government > "other firms" when it comes to job prospects?

They're each so subjective that I would put them together.

Also the USNEWS got rid of the Art. III distinction. Think they did so because so many schools were misreporting it?

Great graphs, these have always been very helpful. Just wondering, would an attorney practicing Workers Compensation be classified under public interest?

The employer type categories (law firm, public interest, government, clerkships, academia, and business) regard only the type of employer, not the kind of work you're doing, either by licensing requirements or substance.

This means that an attorney practicing workers' compensation can be in any of the categories. Classification only depends on who the person works for.
