When you are thinking about going to law school you've got to think about what you're going to do after those three years are over. After all, you're going to law school to become a lawyer, right?
NALP, the Association of Legal Career Professionals, is an organization made up of legal employers and law school career professionals. NALP — its staff, leaders, and members — collectively know a whole lot about the world of lawyer jobs. This portal was designed by NALP volunteers to help prelaw advisors and students in the US learn more about the legal employment market.

A final thought from NALP on law school rankings: NALP discourages the use of rating systems or rank-ordered lists in evaluating law schools. Law schools are defined by many different, yet often related, characteristics whose significance and relationship to a particular organization vary from year to year. For example, no rigid ranking of law schools can quantify the subjective value of education at each school; the quality of teaching cannot be quantified on a national basis.
