BLS was among just 20 law schools to improve their employment rate by 10 percent or more for recent graduates, according to new rankings by The National Jurist.
The magazine noted that between 2011 and 2013, traditional full-time legal employment jumped 17 percent for BLS graduating classes. Rankings were based on editors’ own methodology and did not count meaningful jobs in compliance and other fields where BLS graduates are employed.
The full picture is even brighter: 90 percent of the Class of 2013 was employed in professional jobs where a J.D. is a demonstrable advantage, as of February 15, 2014 (the official ABA reporting date).
