I want to take a moment to discuss the data the charts in this blog reflect:
All 2L Summer and 1st Year Associate counts on this page are reflections of the NALP Directory of Legal Employers data sets. This blog doesn't attempt to be anything but a reflection of those numbers. If you find them useful, I'm glad. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to exhaustively research individual firms' numbers in an effort to create real transparency. I hope that the information included within these charts, along with this admission of the non-exhaustive nature of the data sets included, impels someone to help fill in the NALP data gaps. If you have reliable information regarding a specific firm's office in a specific city, please feel free to contact me and I'll include the information in upcoming charts.
But first, let me take a selfie.
