don't argue with renzo please. dude argued over what w&c means for like half a thread once. which was completely academic because those firms are never mentioned in the same context except "oh hey which firms have the initials w and c?"

Over half of all attorneys starting at NLJ 250 firms were recruited from the top 14 law schools. Not many law firms have thousands of lawyers.

So I can keep using the NLJ 250 as a proxy for the number of "biglaw" jobs?

And I still feel a little bad about it.

In my own defense, I did give fair warning at the beginning of that abomination of a thread. If I recall, my wife was being a rag and I was looking for a fight.
