Just a game, nothing serious.

One's I've thought of 


Yale= WLRK- The most selective out there. On a rarefied plane.
Harvard = Cravath- Many think it's the most prestigious. Large class sizes
Stanford= Irell - Somewhat obscure for its prestige. Smaller.
Columbia= Sullivan Cromwell- White shoe. 
GULC= Jones Day- Huge, lots of lay prestige.
Duke= King and Spaulding- Best in the deep south.
Vandy= Alliston Bird- Deep south rival of the above.
Cooley= Jacoby & Meyers- Destined to strip-mall offices.

Chicago = Quinn Emanuel

The upside: They're good.  They're prestigious.  They're effective.

The downside: They'll be damned if they'll let you forget it.

Actually, I think YLS is more like Williams & Connolly, but that's just me.

Also, NYU = Legal Aid Society/ACLU.
