According to "Selected Findings from the Employment Report and Salary Survey for the Class of 2014," for the first time since 2007 and the onset of the Great Recession, the employment rate for law school graduates has risen, from just 84.5% for the Class of 2013 to 86.7% for the Class of 2014, a jump of 2.2 percentage points. This good news comes, however, with a few caveats.
According to the press release, NALP's 2015 Associate Salary Survey depicts a market where first-year associate salaries at large law firms have become less homogenous, although $160,000 continues to define the top of the market. The full 2015 Associate Salary Survey is now available in the NALP bookstore.
Last month, NALP's 2015-2020 Long Range Strategic Plan was approved by the NALP Board of Directors. If you have not yet reviewed the plan, please take a moment to do so. The LRSP committee would also like to draw your attention to the new tactics library and welcomes suggestions for additional tactics that will help NALP accomplish its goals for the plan.
