Vanderbilt Ranks High on 2011 Grads in Top Firms

While most law schools sent smaller percentages of their 2011 classes into first-year associate jobs at the nation's largest 250 law firms than they did in 2010, The National Law Journal reports that Vanderbilt University still ranks among the top 20 schools in percentage placement with NLJ 250 firms. The school also ranked near the top -- number seven -- in the number of graduates promoted to partner in 2011. The University of Tennessee's law school also placed in the top 50 schools in that category. See the details.
