Of full time (so, not summer) associates who graduated from HLS at each firm currently, the following is the number there were on HLR:
Frankly, those numbers are kind of shocking to me. I wonder where all the HLR people go.
Also, again, not the same as asking about summers. From experience, I know that HLR people tend to do well at EIP.
(NB: If they left it off their firm profile, I wouldn't have seen it. May also have miscounted, though I tried to be accurate.)
From what year? Those numbers seem way too low for the sheer number of associates from Harvard at those firms. Many recent graduates who summered at MTO/W&C/Susman are currently at their clerkships, and therefore wouldn't be reflected on the firm page. Several (I believe 3) of the MTO summers this year are on HLR. Of course it's far from a requirement though.
These are all the current associates at these firms that appeared on their website.
Obviously the associates currently clerking aren't counted, but all the former clerks who returned are (and you'd expect the average for the past seven or so years--the time between coming back from a clerkship and making partner--to be relatively consistent with what will happen to the current clerks).
Again, it's quite possible that some people didn't list HLR on their firm profile (though at Susman, everybody listed a different journal).
And yeah, many (most?) of the MTO, W&C, etc. summers in the current summer class are definitely on HLR.
I'm just curious what happens to them afterwards since they seem not to go back to these firms in particularly large numbers.
A lot of HLR and top 15% students go to Cravath/Wachtell/S&C in New York, even though people on this board tend to deny that top students want NYC biglaw. I also know HLR people working at non-V5 firms in New York and other firms across the country.
Covington, Wilmer, Jenner, Sidley, Jones Day, Gibson, and other elite/selective biglaw shops in DC are also a popular landing spot for HLR folk.
