Firms with biggest DC summer classes

Postby jessuf » Sat Jul 14, 2012 7:36 pm

What firms have the biggest DC summer classes? I want to make sure I have them all on my list.

And by "biggest," I really mean >10.

Akin Gump, Venable, Hogan Lovells, Sutherland, Kirkland , and Crowell & Moring all do I think plus maybe some of the even more grade selective firms. The smaller class size firms are less grade selective though.

I believe O'Melveny and Skadden both have fairly large DC offices.

I'm not sure if that's true. Certainly not true for the lit boutiques and also not true for firms like O'Melveney and Jenner, which have pretty small classes and are pretty grade selective, at least more than Crowell and Hogan.

There are a number of mistakes:

(1) Sullivan & Cromwell - that's the firmwide number
(2) Seward & Kissell - that's the firmwide number

There might be other mistakes as well.
