#1 in Job Placement at Large Firms 

As highlighted in a Reuters article on April 20, 2022, new data from the American Bar Association shows that Cornell Law School continues to excel in career placement, sending a “higher percentage of its 2021 graduates to large law firms than any other U.S. law school.” “The Biggest Law Firms Turned to These Schools for U.S. Recruits,” written by Karen Sloan, noted that “More than three quarters of its recent juris doctors—76%—took jobs at law firms with 251 or more lawyers. Cornell was followed by Columbia Law School, which had nearly 73% of 2021 grads go on to large firms, and the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School with nearly 68%.”
