Dear Judged
Law firm rankingsI am a first year associate. Why are the law firm rankings so hyped up? Are they reliable? Do you think I should actually believe every word written in these? What are your views for the same?

Dear Broomiebroom,

Law Firm rankings are hyped up for a couple of different reasons. A big part of it is the, “I’m the biggest and the best” mentality of attorneys. However, there is a lot of valuable information in the some rankings; they can tell you a great deal about where a firm is headed and if it’s a place you’d be interested in practicing. Some ranking are very reliable, others not so much; it can be hard to tell on the internet (not everyone has as much integrity as the Judge). Make sure you check with your career services department for trustworthy information about firms.
