Loyola ranks third in survey of law schools producing most satisfied big-firm lawyers
A new American Lawyer survey ranks Loyola third in its listing of law schools that produce the most satisfied big-firm lawyers. The story states “that respondents' overall job satisfaction strongly correlates with how well they believe their law schools prepared them for practice.”
Associates at the top-finishing schools tended to say they gained practical skills at law school that they still use daily. That was the case with alumni at Loyola, the alma mater of Samuel Greenberg, a tax associate at Munger, Tolles & Olson in Los Angeles. Greenberg [Loyola Law School JD ’10, Tax LLM ‘12], who had a background in public accounting before attending Loyola, says it was important to him that his classes be taught by people who practiced the law, not just theorized about it. "At the end of the day, if you have a particular craft in law that you are looking to practice, Loyola will give you what you need," he says. (Greenberg received permission from his firm to speak on the record. All the other associates quoted in this article asked not to be named, so they could speak freely.)
