Michigan Law has long enjoyed renown as a launching pad to the nation's premier private law firms; it is among the top law schools in placing the largest percentage of graduates in the most prestigious national law firms. More than 500 domestic and international law firms, including branch offices, hired our 2012-2016 graduates. More specifically, 343 went to New York City, 237 to Chicago, 184 to Washington, D.C., 28 to Boston, 61 to Los Angeles, and 88 to the California Bay Area.

The list below includes links to some of our favorite resources for identifying and researching law firms. For advice on the law firm job application process and timeline, preparing your application materials, and networking, please visit our
Student Career Toolkit in addition to the resources listed in the On-Campus Interviewing Section below.
To help you navigate and get the most out of the primary law firm research tools, the reference librarians at the Law Library have put together a series of videos for you. The videos cover law firm research using ALM Intelligence Legal Compass, Vault, the NALP Directory, Chambers, and many other research sources.
There is also a
research guide which links to all of the employer research resources.
Even if you are not in Ann Arbor, the reference librarians can help you with personalized employer research assistance by phone, email, or even videoconferencing (using Skype or another platform). To schedule an appointment you can email AskALawLibrarian@umich.edu or use the
online appointment scheduler.
