Now, I'm in CO 2011, so things are improving - but not by much. Foley & Lardner is the only relatively large firm in Wisconsin, and Foley is doing really poorly. From the friends I still have at Wisconsin, CO 2011 is looking at 70-75% unemployment at graduation: and that includes all employment, not just people missing biglaw.
No idea how much better CO 2012 did or how 2014 is going to do, but it's not pretty right now.
Anyone know any different?
