New Research on Law School Funded Positions for Law School Graduates
NALP Bulletin, September 2012
New information collected as part of the graduate employment survey for the Class of 2011 reveals that more than 1,700 jobs taken by that class were funded by the graduate’s law school through a variety of bridge fellowship programs, grants, and other programs. As noted in the Selected Findings for the Class of 2011, such jobs accounted for almost 5% of the jobs taken by this class, and absent such jobs, the overall employment rate for the class would have been about 4 percentage points lower, just over 81%. This figure is lower even than the previously recorded low overall employment rate of 83.4% for the Class of 1994.
