Also good news for class of 2013

"After cutting back some last year, Kirkland's summer class this year will be on par with years prior to the economic downturn. In what amounts to good news for law school students, Primis says his firm has "certainly seen an uptick in corporate activity" both in terms of mergers and acquisition and general commercial litigation work."

My favorite quote:

"[The list was derived from responses by] . . . 750 hiring partners and recruiters at law firms who made the 2010 Best Law Firms rankings produced jointly by U.S. News and the publication Best Lawyers. The response rate was 14 percent."

Hopefully Kirkland hired 3000 before the economic downturn.

I have always thought of Penn being overrated in the USNews ranking. Guess this shows that many law firms agree.
