Employment Data


With the skills, professional confidence, and contacts gained from externships, clinics, legal positions, and classrooms, our students graduate prepared to practice law.

Our 7,900+ alumni live and practice in 49 states, and in United States territories, Europe, Asia, and Canada. Some of our graduates are partners in major private firms or work in public agencies. Many have begun their career by doing state or federal judicial clerkships. Others are employed in solo or small firm practice; some teach at colleges and law schools. Over one hundred forty of our alumni have become members of the judiciary, while still others represent the interests of major corporations, law enforcement agencies, and armed services personnel.

The employment statistics for the classes of 2017, 2016, and 2015, reflect employment status nine months after graduation and include full-time, part-time, short and long-term, legal and non-legal positions.
