Since I have too much nervous energy as I await decisions, I have thoroughly searched through linkedin for profiles of stanford llm graduates that went on to work for big law firms (globally, not just US) as associates (not legal assistants, etc) after graduation.....but I found none. Most are working as in house counsel.
In comparison, such profiles were abundant for harvard, columbia, penn, nyu llm grads.
So I was wondering, is this situation the result of:
a) choice -- stanford llm grads do not prefer big law, or
b) those who went on to big law are substantial, but they just don't have/don't update linkedin accounts, or
c) my search method was inaccurate, or
d) stanford llm grads are in less demand by big corporate law firms than harvard, columbia, penn, nyu llm grads?
What do you all think?
