like 99% of all recruiting committees across all law firms

Them choosing to use grades as a way to weed out applicants isn't quite the same thing.


Yes it is. You wouldn't use grades to weed unless you thought it was at least a decent indicator.

but also it's easy, sort of objective, and something people can agree on. Also inertia.


I imagine it also appeases clients who like to see the list of associates on a project all having ivies and various honors.


No clients care very little about the honors of associates unless associate is such a moron that they have to wonder where the firm found them.
