Law School Job Placement

Welcome to my website. Here I have published my attempt to update Brian Leiter's 2003 study of how successfully top law schools place their graduates at top firms throughout the country. I used Brian Leiter's methods from his 2003 study to get up-to-date numbers for a new set of results. Let me emphasize at the start that I believe both studies to be accurate and I only see my job as providing new numbers. I believe these new results could be important because Brian Leiter's various rankings of law schools are used by other people both on the web and in print. For instance, his job placement rankings recently appeared in Susan Estrich's book How to Get into Law School. Please look around this site and compare my study to Brian Leiter's study. Check out Leiter's blog to hear what he has to say about my site.
