Does anyone know what the top schools are for academic placement? A list of the top ten? It doesn't seem to be in the USNews rankings, and I'll be damned if I know where to find it.Thanks.

Depends on where you want to teach...For example, there are a number of professors at Cooley who went to Cooley. If you look at any individual school's faculty profiles, you will notice that schools hire professors who earned a JD at just about any school out there. I was looking at the faculty profiles at the University of Michigan today and noticed that while most of the professors had attended Harvard, Yale, or Michigan, there was one each who went to Pace, Loyola-LA, Wayne State, Wisconsin, and U of Detroit (maybe more, I ran out of time).

Here's the link of most importance (Where tenure-track faculty went to law school):http://www.utexas.edu/law/faculty/bleiter/rankings02/tenure.htmlOf secondary importance (SCOTUS clerkship placement):http://www.utexas.edu/law/faculty/bleiter/rankings02/clerkships.htmlBoth rankings are a little dated (The former from 2002, the latter from 2001), but they should give you a good idea which schools give you the best shot at placing in law teaching. I would recommend looking at where each professor currently teaches. Georgetown, for example, does not have their alums teaching in as many top schools as Columbia or Chicago, even though they have a relatively high number of professors out there.
