Entry Level Hiring: U.S. Advanced Law Degrees

At request, I've broken out U.S. law schools from which entry level candidates received (or expected to receive) higher law degrees: LL.M.s, SJDs, or JSDs. (Unlike the other summary of degrees, this includes both Other Degree (1) and Other Degree (2).)

LL.M. or LL.M. expected: Georgetown 6; NYU 3; Yale 3; Florida 2; Harvard 2; Duke 1; JAG School 1; Penn 1; Temple 1; U Conn 1; Wisconsin 1. (The high number of Georgetown LL.M.s may be due at least in part to the fact that some of the Georgetown teaching fellowships also result in an LL.M.)

SJD, JSD  (or expected): Cornell 1; Harvard 1; Michigan 1; Penn 1; Yale 1.

Update 5/25/2011, 2:17pm: The Berkeley JSP program does not issue advanced law degrees (it grants PhDs), but the PhDs it issues are higher degrees granted by a U.S. law school. This year, there were two entry level hires who had or were expecting a PhD in JSP from Berkeley Law.
