We want to welcome students back to the Law School after what we hope have been productive and enjoyable summers. To help students prepare for their on campus interviews, we’ve put together an online guide for Researching Legal Employers. This guide is intended to supplement the many helpful resources provided by the Law School’s Office of Career Services. One resource to highlight is ALM Legal Intelligence, which includes access to full-text ALM Survey & Ranking reports, including the AmLaw 100 and the ALM Midlevel and Summer Associate Surveys. To access a report, just click on its name. ALM Legal Intelligence also provides the ability to search law firm data and access ready-made Law Firm Reports for 300+ world wide firms. In the Attorney Search tab, you can look for individual attorney profiles by name, firm/organization name, law school, area of practice, job title, and geographic area.whose resources are detailed below.
Also, in addition to providing an array of primary and secondary legal sources, Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis, and Westlaw are excellent tools for researching legal employers. They link attorney and judge profiles with briefs and other case filings, various news sources, and other related resources that should prove helpful in researching potential employers.
If you want any help in using these resources, please feel free to stop by the reference desk while you’re in the Law School or contact us through Ask a Law Librarian.
