    Hello everyone!

    Law.com released its annual Go-To Law Schools rankings and Columbia once again finished in first place with 68% of the school’s graduates working in the top 100 law firms. That was nearly 8 full percentage points ahead of number two University of Chicago which sent approximately 60% of its 2017 graduates to the top 100 law firms. These positions generally pay $180,000 to the new associates.

    It may be worth noting that law schools that send a large portion of their graduates to short-term clerkship positions are often penalized in the Go-To Law Schools rankings. Generally, the law school grads who take these clerkships will join a top 100 law firm afterward and receive a starting salary of $190,000 as well as a signing bonus of $80,000 or more.

    Perhaps not surprisingly, the three law schools that have the largest percent of graduates who work as clerks are Yale, Harvard and Stanford.

    Best of luck with your applications!
