How many graduates from leading law schools are on the teaching market?

End-of-the-year reporting on blogs about rookie hiring, while always incomplete, rarely includes any sense of how many job seekers from each school were actually on the market.   Here's a useful compilation for this year, based on the first two FAR distributions, that we might want to revisit in the Spring:

University of California, Berkeley:  18 alumni on the market (250 approx. class size)

University of California, Los Angeles:  6 alumni on the market (300 approx. class size)

University of Chicago:  11 alumni on the market (200 approx. class size)

Columbia University:  24 alumni on the market (400 approx. class size)

Cornell University:  12 alumni on the market (200 approx. class size)

Duke University:  12 alumni on the market (200 approx. class size)

Georgetown University:  36 alumni on the market (600 approx. class size)

Harvard University:  54 alumni on the market (550 approx. class size)

University of Michigan:  18 alumni on the market (350 approx. class size)

New York University:  31 alumni on the market (450 approx. class size)

Northwestern University:  14 alumni on the market (250 approx. class size)

University of Pennsylvania:  11 alumni on the market (250 approx. class size)

Stanford University:  17 alumni on the market (175 approx. class size)

University of Texas, Austin:  11 alumni on the market (450 approx. class size)

University of Virginia:  8 alumni on the market (350 approx. class size)

Yale University:  32 alumni on the market (200 approx. class size)

Relative to historic success, some schools have suprisingly large numbers on the market (and some, like UVA, surprisingly small numbers).
