Class of 2014 ABA Employment Data; Nerd call-in thread

Postby Nebby » Tue Apr 14, 2015 4:28 pm

Post schools' new ABA forms with links to the pdf. I'll compile here. I don't recall, is BigLawl 250+ or 500+?

FT/PB = 527
BigLaw + Fed Clerk = 395/586 = 67%

I'd put big law at 250+. 500+ leaves out a lot of common firms.

also are those harvard numbers real? 14.5% for fed clerk would be particularly weak. UVA was 15% this year.

Straight from the harvard website so apparently real. You're right about the fed clerk numbers - historically the percentage is about 18-20.

I wonder if theres a meaningful difference in outcomes between transfers and students who originally matriculated there. I assume transfers have good grades and are therefore more likely to get good jobs

Harvard was at 15.2% and UVA was at 15.7%.

That thread is lame and boring. TYIA
And it calculates Bigelow incorrectly.

The thread Scotti linked to is better for the actual numbers/etc. Sorry Neebs - scooped.

BUT there is def room for more argument over semi-minutiae:

Do we draw the line for BigLaw at 100+ Att'y or 250+? 100 gives you more midlaw that might not pay market rates, but 250 excludes the good boutique firms that definitely do.

LST calculates it as 100+ attorneys and that's generally how TLS has been calculating it fwiw

I've never heard 100+ on here being the cut off. You're lying to me, Scotti!
