Post-Graduate employment statistics

Postby Grad09 » Sat Jan 30, 2010 5:45 pm

I recently read an article with a few graphs that broke down the composition of a given city's legal market by graduates of a given school. Does anyone have a link? The cities included NYC, SF, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, etc.

In fact, does anyone have any statistics that correlates school with placement in a given city? For example, what is the breakdown of lawyers in NY according to their school of graduation?

Thanks for the help. Sorry if I made this confusing.

This article has the graph linked in it: http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... hbxlogin=1

the info is kind of old, though.

"Despite its many flaws, the annual U.S. News & World Report law school ranking is cheap and easy to use, making it an important source of information for prospective students weighing their options. Unfortunately, the utility of these rankings is often distorted by an Internet-based echo chamber, where anonymous posters brag about their admissions to elite schools and job prospects at big firms."

LOL!!! The article mentions TLS!
