since this thread has been revived, I should point out that there is no AmLaw 250. There is an AmLaw 200 and a NLJ 250. The AmLaw 200 is the top 200 firms by gross revenues, and the NLJ 250 is the top 250 firms by number of attorneys. I think the AmLaw 200 is the more useful measure, personally, for determining what biglaw is. Which one were you talking about?
