Re: What schools do amlaw 100 firms recruit from?

Postby HugerThanSoup » Wed Feb 09, 2011 9:10 pm

This is far too broad a question: AmLaw 100 firms recruit, or have recruited, from the top 100 law schools (and beyond) over the past decade. Moreover, from year to year the range for "AmLaw 100" varies. Even top firms will take a student or two from lower-ranked regional schools, especially if the student has connections to the firm. But this doesn't mean that you have a good shot at getting biglaw if you go to any T100; you actually have a pretty bad shot if you're outside the T10.

Is there a firm in particular that you're considering? Or would you like to know what your "odds" are of getting a biglaw job after graduation? Or are you trying to decide what law school to go to given their employment statistics? Or are you just thinking generally what schools do the amorphous mass of every-changing "AmLaw 100" firms hire from in a given year?

"What schools do AM 100 firms recruit from?"
"What questions do people ask in OCI?"
"Which schools have the youngest demographics?"
"What do the rankings mean?"
"How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"

GOOD GRIEF! What is the deal with all the stupid 0L questions on here lately?


Here....try this.

OP, this may be what you're looking for... although it's the NLJ250 rather than amlaw 100. http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... hbxlogin=1

Noted. But your question is one that could easily be answered with some research.

I guess I just want to know my odds, biglaw is really all I want to do


If that's all you want to do, the T18 (if you are a risk-taker) is all you should bother with. Really, only HYS are close to guarantees of biglaw.

You're kind of terrible at the internet.

You're wasting your time...I already tried that on OP. S/he "exhausted" her/his research and came to TLS as a last resort.
