What is the average HYS grad doing 5, 10, 20 years out?

Postby minnesotamike » Fri Dec 09, 2011 11:22 pm

Are there any longitudinal studies on this?

I understand that in the first five years in biglaw, you hopefully will have made a dent in your debt.

I also understand that many people transition in-house, to midlaw or to bigfed when they inevitably wash out of biglaw before/during year 5. Are there any statistics about any of this?

Only longitudinal study I know of is for UVA.

There's some data in there that can be used to determine, in a very rough sense, what everyone's doing. There may be cites to other longitudinal studies; I only skimmed it.
