Answer

You can use the :gt selector:

$("li a:gt(0)")

Update: If you are interested in performance, the fastest by far is

$("li a").slice(1)

about which the docs say:

Because :gt() is a jQuery extension and not part of the CSS specification, queries using :gt() cannot take advantage of the performance boost provided by the native DOM querySelectorAll() method. For better performance in modern browsers, use $("your-pure-css-selector").slice(index) instead.
