Supreme Court clerkships

Prof. Brian Leiter at the University of Chicago law school has compiled a list of law schools that have placed students in S. Ct. clerkships and the total number of clerks hired from each law school by an active justice of the Supreme Court. He also looks at class size , saying that "the total number of clerks divided by recent class size is not a measure of the likelihood of getting a Supreme Court clerkship, but rather some indication of the relative success of schools in placing graduates as Supreme Court clerks taking into account their size."
No surprises, the top 5 are Harvard, Yale, U. Chicago, Stanford and Columbia.
