Big Law Odds

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jun 25, 2017 4:23 pm

What are the odds that a COA clerk from a low T2/high T3 law school will get big law in DC, NY, or some secondary market like those in TX? Assuming no ties to any big law markets, including school location.

Anywhere from 0.01-99.99%

Your question is just way too ambiguous to give any proper answer

Does your ct take on a lot of a specific case, or is it known for being the place for x, y, or z?

What about talking with prior clerks from your court(s)?

It's highly likely that you'll land big law in a major market. Apply broadly, of course.

As for secondary markets, it's going to be harder without ties.
