A sobering list of BigLaw lay-offs to date.

The American Lawyer has compiled a list of the top firm lay-offs including staff, associates and partners since the financial crisis took on steam this fall. 

It's a stark indicator of the present state of the legal marketplace.  Especially when you consider these employers typically hire well credentialed candidates from highly selective law schools and thus their entry into the applicant pool makes the competition for remaining jobs ferocious.

I am the scholarship dude - hoping this crisis gets solved soon but worried it might not.
