Law professors Rick Sander and Jane Yakowitz wrote an article called “The Secret of My Success: How Status, Prestige and School Performance Shape Legal Careers.” The professors’ study found that high law school grades are a good indicator of future legal career success. They imply that it may be better to go to a lower ranked law school and get higher grades than go to a high ranked law school where the competition is tougher and get lower grades. For a summary of the article see “Don’t Go to That Law School — It’s Too High-Ranked!“
