I believe that the BC law name does carry well in the market, but I'm just curious about specific numbers with regard to 2L OCI. The 2006-2007 Profile shows 60% of the Class of 2004 employed at firms broken down as:
- Small (1-20)....15%
- Medium (21-100)....2%
- Large (101+)....43%
I'm assuming that only the last category would be able to consistently fund summer associates. Would it be reasonable to assume this represents top 1/3 OCI plus IP and those with connections?
The info is generally correct. The market is strong right now and getting stronger, so the stats could change to favor law firms, but at BC, there is a large number of students interested in Public Interest work, so the stats may stay the same as last year. I wouldn't expect too difficult a time getting a job so long as you are in the top half. At least, it hasn't been hard for the current 3Ls.
