Congratulations to the 2013 Skadden Fellows

Two lists appear below. The first shows the 2013 Skadden fellows and the organizations they’ll be working for. If you’d like to read more about their specific projects, check out the Skadden Fellowships website.

The second shows the law schools that have sent graduates into Skadden Fellowships for the past five years (fellowship classes 2009 to 2013). Harvard tops the list with 24, followed by Yale and NYU with 12 apiece, and then Stanford with 10. If you see any errors — we did the tabulation manually — please let us know.

Congratulations to all of the Skadden fellows and their law schools!
