I need more detail about the sample (size, geo etc.) in order to believe any of this.

Seriously. According to this the median Yale law student makes more per week in their 2L summer than mid-career. I suppose it's possible.

Law professor makes less than biglaw lawyer. This isn't all that surprising.

Not that law professors aren't generally well compensated, but not like if they stayed in prestigious private practice.

When TLS has had postings asking members to rank law schools, people always ask why I put Yale at about #8 or #10. Now you know!

The fact that a school can lure a bunch of overacheiving geeks with no people skills, most of whom will never know as much as even the typical second-tier law grad about actual law "practice", does not make it a great school to attend. It certainly does not mean the school should be as highly ranked as it is. Yale admits "numbers" not people, and employers are rightly suspicious of Yale's grading system, or lack thereof. Thirdly, Yale's grads who take clerkships, only to go on to become law profs, analysts or authors, need to do so.

As the saying goes, those who can...DO; those who can't...TEACH.

These are people who got their start in a totally different market than ITE, and spent the vast majority of their work lives NOT ITE.

Is there a full list somewhere or did they just rank the top 25 and then throw in the fact that Yale was #33?

Rutgers Camden is no surprise. With an amazing alumni network and great practical experience opportunities, the only surprise is that they weren't higher on the list. Certainly, they are not more of a surprise than Georgia State. People tend to forget that Rutgers was one of the original Ivy League colleges. In addition, it's simply an outstanding law school. My question is where did Rutgers Newark fall on the list? While the article says that 98 schools were ranked (which I am presuming encompasses most of the Tier 1 schools), I can only find rankings for the top 25 and Yale.

Unfortunately there's no ranking for coolest fucking jobs law school alumni get instead we see their salaries... So harvard law grads salary medians arent 300,000 but they got an alumnus in president and samantha powers has a fuckin awesome job and yale's sotomayor is sittin high and mighty on that walmart case ready to bust corporate ass....i mean, really.

edit: of course, our secretary of state too...
