Doesn't seem to differentiate between federal and state clerkships.

**76.44%

155/208=74.52%


(13 + 24 + 102 + 20) = 159

I didn't notice the short-term clerkship. Good catch!

Edit: Wrong URL


Funniest part of this is the geographic location of employed grads:

States of largest employment:
Texas - 184
DC - 1
Florida - 1

I know it's helpful in choosing a school, but I also see it more closely related with the state of the legal industry right now.

Nothing special, Tiago.

I just wish more of them did it. There's no real reason to make people wait. They've probably had these reports ready way before today.

I asked for at least one deposit deadline extension on the basis of this critical information not being public yet, I doubt I was the only one.

Most likely. I like ATL's rankings much better. 40% of US News' rankings are ratings by lawyers and judges, which makes the rankings much less reliable.


Where Yale is #5? Lol. You guys realize that's not how law firms view these schools right (in terms of how much of the class they are willing to recruit)? Recruiting is more similar to USNews.

I'm sure everyone who went to Yale law could do biglaw or a clerkship if they wanted to....but obviously people who have options wouldn't choose the former.

I agree with this, which is why I care more about the bar passage required positions rate than the amount of people in biglaw.
