The John Marshall Law School was named a top law school by The National Law Journal for having the most number of graduates promoted to partnership in 2016 in the country’s largest law firms.
According to The National Law Journal’s annual “Go-To Law Schools” special report, 12 John Marshall alumni made partner in top law firms over the last year. The numbers propelled John Marshall on to this year’s list.
“John Marshall trains practice-ready lawyers who are versatile, entrepreneurial and ethical. Our students work hard and doggedly pursue their dreams. These rankings reflect that our graduates have the ability to not only practice in a variety of settings, including big law, but to rise to the top,” said John Marshall Law School Dean Darby Dickerson. “We are thrilled to hear about our alumni’s continued successes.”
At John Marshall, all students must complete 18 credit hours of experiential learning to graduate. They complete this requirement through a variety of courses, including externships, simulation classes and clinics.
The National Law Journal used data provided by the country’s 100 largest law firms, data from ALM Media’s Rival Edge database and independent reporting to determine its rankings.
