For the graduating class of 2019, 98 percent were employed or continuing their education. The employment data in the tables below is generated by NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals. The tables below have been formatted for readability; you may also view the original 2009 [PDF], 2010 [PDF], 2011 [PDF], 2012 [PDF], 2013 [PDF], 2014 [PDF], 2015 [PDF], 2016 [PDF], 2017 [PDF], 2018 [PDF], and 2019 [PDF] NALP Summary Reports (partially redacted for privacy).
In addition, we provide the ABA Employment Summary for 2020 [PDF]*, 2019 [PDF], 2018 [PDF], 2017 [PDF],
2016 [PDF], 2015 [PDF], 2014 [PDF], 2013 [PDF], and 2012 [PDF] grads. This includes data other than that reported to NALP—e.g., law school/university funded positions. (The ABA data for previous years mirrored that of NALP, and so we do not include it separately here.)
*Information on employment outcomes for the Class of 2020 many not reflect a particular law school's typical results in this area. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, bar admissions exams were canceled or delayed in many jurisdictions, thus making it more challenging for graduates to secure employment by the annual Graduate Employment Status Date of March 15. Please reference the 3 years of employment outcome data posted on the ABA Required Disclosures webpage of each ABA-Approved Law School or at www.abarequireddisclosures.org.
