Study Reports that Georgetown Law Produces Second-Largest Number of Partners at National Law Firms
December 3, 2012 —
According to a study recently published in the Journal of Legal Education, Georgetown Law produces the second-largest number of partners at national law firms. The study, “Where Do Partners Come From?,” by Professor Theodore P. Seto of Loyola Law School, finds that Georgetown has achieved the second-largest big-firm footprint of any law school in the country, second only to Harvard.
The study also reports that Georgetown Law makes the lists of the top 10 feeder schools for eight of the 10 largest U.S. legal markets, including New York, Washington, D.C. (where Georgetown Law ranks at the top), Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Houston, San Francisco and San Diego. Harvard is the only school in more of the top 10 national markets. The schools are ranked by number of partners in U.S. offices of the National Law Journal 100 who received their J.D. in 1986 or later.
