The impression I've always had is that firms care more about law GPA/law school for litigation, and background/undergrad GPA for prosecution. Could be part of the reason why prosecution jobs at big firms seem to have lots of Franklin Pierce/Loyola Chicago-type grads, as opposed to more of a T50 skew for the litigation jobs.weee wrote:1. Are there any major players in IP that are conspicuously missing?
2. Does anyone have an idea what the impact of being an EE is on getting a litigation position? Is it more likely to cause a firm to lower their GPA standard, or just a substantial edge over a non tech candidate that otherwise meet their normal minimum hiring requirements.
3. Don't forget to look at the two resume collecting employers they added!
Akin Gump was on the list last year and isn't this year, but I dunno that they're a major player anyway.
