It really is inconceivable that you can include such NYC-area schools as St. John's, NYLS, Brooklyn and Seton Hall and omit City University of New York Law School, which has for years sent its students into the public sector better prepared to start work on Day 1 than any other school. Interesting that the article cites no methodology whatever.
