Note: Subsequent to the survey, it was learned that Dale Oesterle (corporate law, securities regulation) at the University of Colorado at Boulder and Larry Garvin (contracts, commercial law) at Florida State University had accepted positions at Ohio State University. OSU’s score in this category (2.7) would presumably improve as a result. In addition, William Bratton in corporate law at George Washington University has an offer from Georgetown; if he accepts, Georgetown’s score would presumably improve somewhat, and GW would likely drop off the “runner-up” list.
