Breaking News: US News Law Firm Rankings

Postby SplitterPride » Wed Sep 15, 2010 3:13 am

Here are your links: http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/

More on the story: --LinkRemoved--


Looks like US News understands the rankings game better than anyone and I am sure they will dictate decisions/prestige/ outlook with clients and law school students and the lay person.

Now that I am sure my career will eventually be seen through the prism of a media company's rankings, this would be a good time to KILLSELF.

Please leave your comments and your condolences for the profession.

I like ATL's quip: "It’s like Christmas morning — if only Santa were a jolly red prestige whore."

These rankings are hilariously bad/inaccurate. Compare them to Chambers. Lol.

After a quick review of these rankings, much like the US News Law school rankings, these are a fucking joke.

What objective data could possibly be used to determine these tiers. How sad for the profession.
