Ties to an area.

Postby chewy » Tue Jun 12, 2012 7:19 pm

This question may have been answered in a corner of TLS I am yet to find, but what exactly is a tie to a market? and how much can it really help. Do hiring committees really just listen to what a partner not on the committee has to say about a person? I guess my thought process is that it would help a lot with a small 15 lawyer firm, but how much poll does one partner have at a huge firm "to get their guy in"

How hard did you look, really?


Also, it's "pull," not "poll."

Yeah, a tie is not a "hookup" or "in." It means you lived there, usually.
