Does anyone know what the cutoff for what constitutes biglaw is in those rankings? No offense, Vannabunny, but when you think of biglaw you think of places in bigger cities (NY, DC, LA etc.), I didn't know the term could apply to firms in mid-sized cities as well.

Philadelphia!!!  No love for the city of Brotherly Love?  Good law firms, great market for lawyers, lower cost of living than DC or NY, and fantastic restaurants.  Beautiful suburbs with great schools and golf courses (The two most important factors).

All they need to do is get rid of the city wage tax and it'd be #1.



Yeah, but if you get AIDS, they fire you on the spot.
