Law Firms for Law Professors
posted by Miriam Cherry
Are there biglaw firms that have a reputation as more “academic,” or having a high percentage of “alumni” going into law teaching? Based on this factor, and wanting to stay in Boston, I took an opportunity here (poor Eliot was sacrificed to the branding campaign gods, although Hoag seemed the more natural candidate…). Bright lights of that era were Angela Onwuachi-Willig, Rashmi Dyal-Chand, Jessica Silbey, Joel Ngugi, Bill McGeveran, fellow guest-blogger Tim Zick, who I was scratching my head trying to figure out how I knew, thus he served as inspiration for this post, and, oh, yeah, Doug Kysar. (Dina Wreede always did do excellent work). What is the current word on which law firms send the most “alums” into academia?
