The NALP Directory of Legal Employers has undergone a major redesign that addressed the look and feel of the site as
well as functionality for both employers and job seekers. We are pleased to launch the employer-side Data Collection
System in February as Phase 1 of the rollout (Phase 2, the searchable directory for job seekers, will launch in May 2012).
Some important notes:
- The questions on the NALP Form have not changed, but responses from prior years will not carry over to the new system. (You will be able to copy and paste responses into the new system, and responses will carry over from year to year going forward.) The old data collection system will remain available until May should you need to access old information.
- Demographic data will continue to be collected as of February 1 for research purposes — you can find more information and tips on collecting demographic information at www.nalp.org/collecting_demographics.
- Because there will no longer be a print edition, the submission deadline will be later. The online directory has
been the primary go-to reference for students and job seekers for the past several years, while the vastly less
used print edition has become more and more costly to print and ship. Guided by member feedback, NALP has
chosen to invest in upgrading the functionality of the online directory rather than continuing the print edition.
