While it may seem a little unorthodox, I would like to discuss some of the top law schools. I will share with you observations I have picked up in my legal career regarding these schools. These are generally the top law schools for hiring and I have listed them based on my personal ranking of them (in ascending order). I have also described the characteristics and general stereotypes that are often associated with graduates coming out of these schools.

While the below ruminations are largely anecdotal, they do summarize the collective views of most people in the legal community that I have picked up in my career as a legal recruiter.

In addition, all law schools have "cultures" that end up rubbing off on the people who spend three years of their lives at the school. Because of this, different schools create different psychologies that can be seen in their graduates years later. Do the grades or class rank during law school ultimately determine your level of success as an attorney? See Law School Grades and Your Career to find out the answer.

Think the law school you went to matters in the long run? Think again. See this article for more information: 10 Factors That Matter to Big Firms More Than Where You Went to Law School: Why the Law School You Went to Ultimately Does Not Matter as Much as You Think It Does to Major Law Firms.
