Are Leiter's 2008 employment statistics still relevant?

I was reviewing firm level legal hiring statistics that Brian Leiter posted in 2008 (he hasn't updated them since). I know that this hiring took place during a totally different time for legal recruiting, so the absolute number of grads from each school that are hired into these firms has changed. However, I wanted to know whether people still thought that the relative number of grads from each school is still representative of their career placement clout.

The data seem to reflect the general consensus on TLS that school region matters, at least in a broad sense

In what way have things changed? More clustering at the top?
