ALM’s surveys, rankings and data are an essential resource for knowledge managers, firm leadership and anyone seeking to better understand the legal market, the firms that comprise it, and the issues and challenges endemic to both.
The A-List, published annually in July, is based on rankings taken from four ALM surveys that ALM Legal Intelligence conducts throughout the year. Both revenue per lawyer and pro bono ranks are taken from the Am Law 200 while the Diversity Scorecard) and the Midlevel Associates Survey provide the diversity and associate satisfaction ranks, respectively. The A-List formula provides a collective measurement of the most successful and committed firms in the United States.
The 2018 edition of the Am Law 200 is, in many ways, a study in contrasts. There is a clear and growing gap between the overwhelming success of the Am Law 100 and the disappointing collective returns of the Second Hundred.
Our goal at ALM Media is to serve the entire legal community and, as part of that, we're adding new wrinkles to our annual Professional Excellence Awards to make sure we highlight the great work and achievements across the full breadth of the legal communities that our publications serve.
