“‘Top schools. Top grades. The firm wants to be a leader of the elite,’ a junior surmised. A senior recruitment source explained, ‘We don’t have any rigid rules, but we look at top ten schools. We look for high grades because they are proxy to the ability to think and do complex work at the highest level, but that’s not enough. You need to be an effective advocate, to stand up in court, or in front of the client. We want a culture of interesting people.’”      —Chambers Associate, 2010


“The work is always of the highest caliber, I work with very intelligent people and associates are given responsibility from the start.”—Miami associate, as reported by Vault
