A couple of weeks ago, the American Bar Association released the results of the 2014 Employment Summary. One thing many of us went to law school for, was the hopes of landing a job at a top-tier law firm.

The American Bar Association breaks down law firms into tiered bands. This year, the total number of students, full & part time, short term and long term, totaled 18,510 of the over 43,000 graduates.
