Supreme Court clerkship placement, 2013 through 2019 terms (CORRECTED)

This covers the 2013 through 2019 terms of the U.S. Supreme Court.  The “per capita” rate reflects the total number of clerks from each law school during those seven terms divided by the average number of students per year at each school (based on ABA data), rounded to the nearest 25 (that number appears in parentheses after the school name).
