Is the job market for law school graduates back to pre-recession conditions? Well, it at least looks that way at the top, if you ask Cornell Law School Dean Eduardo Peñalver. “We think our graduates are basically where they were pre-recession in terms of the mix of jobs they are finding,” said Peñalver. Cornell ranked first in a recent report that looked at salaries of recent law graduates.
Five lawyers from around the world are moving to Washington, D.C. to provide legal services for a newly formed PricewaterhouseCooper branded law firm. The firm, called ILC Legal, marks PwC’s latest expansion into the market for legal services after taking over a large group of tax lawyers from General Electric in April.
This year, Ropes & Gray has seen some “unusual” turnover — as its managing partner recently put it in an interview — especially for a firm that operates in the upper echelon of corporate legal services. But firm leaders say the number of exits don’t tell the whole story. “Many who have left — we haven’t necessarily prevented them from moving, to say it as politely as I can,” said David Chapin, a corporate lawyer who manages the firm’s business from its hometown of Boston. “Some we wish have stayed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
