"Law School Rankings, Not Skills Training, Drives J.D. Employment Outcomes"

The Tax Prof Blog directs our attention to a new paper analyzing the connection between employment outcomes and how elite a law school is considered. The conclusion:
... there is no statistical relationship between law school opportunities for skills training and JD employment outcomes. In contrast, employment outcomes do seem to be strongly related to law school prestige. 
In other words, its not what you know, but whether your diploma has Harvard, Yale, Northwestern, etc., on it.

Does anyone believe it is really any different with MBAs?
