Could someone please give me a response?

Law Firms / Re: Securities Law Background

I don't feel that its necessarily a "requirement" so to speak. 

As a matter of fact, some of the firms that I looked at, I'd venture to say roughly half of them, had managing partners who had no business background, this even includes an economics degree.

I was curious to find out other people's opinions on the topic though.

I took your advice and checked out some profiles of lawyers at well-respected firms in my area. 

I came to find that approximately half of them had business degrees and that of this group roughly 70% had undergraduate business degrees.

Law Firms / Securities Law Background

I was wondering what kind of background is needed for securities law in terms of undergraduate study?  Does it matter or is it irrelvent?

Do you mean top 30/40 in your class?  Or top 30/40% in your class?

I was wondering what kind of marks you need from schools like USC, UCLA, Cornell or Michigan to get biglaw jobs in cities like L.A., Boston or Chicago.

Law Firms / Regional disparities between schools and jobs?

If you attend a school in california (for instance USC, UCLA, etc) or on the east coast (cornell, etc) and you want to get a job in chicago, does the fact that you studied at a school in a different area discourage potential employers?  Does it make it more difficult to get interviews?  Does this limit you to some degree to the general area in which you attended law school? 

Thanks for your replies.
