NLJ data shows Biglaw value of Northwestern Law degree
In addition to high ranking in previous post, here is some additional data from NLJ:
Go-to law firms for selected major law firms. Baker & McKenzie, Kirkland & Ellis, and McDermott, Will, & Emery are at the top for NU Law.
Associates to partner has Northwestern in the high echelon.
Here is a chart that juxtaposes go-to law firm ranking with U.S. News rankings. NU Law overperforms more than any other law school in the T14.
Finally, the last chart is interesting. It puts NU Law in the highest quintile for overall value (placement/cost).
This is actual data, not surveys. Gives some very useful perspective on the question of comparative success in one (though certainly not the only) measure of law school success.
