Survey of Legal Employers on 2023 Recruiting

U.S. employers can help NALP measure and analyze the latest trends in legal recruiting by submitting this survey by November 9. Completion of the survey is a requirement for attending NALP’s Legal Recruiting Summit in January (registration will open soon).

Statement on Affirmative Action

A diverse bar is critical to the legitimacy of the legal profession, the justice system, and the rule of law. NALP will continue to support its members in finding alternative ways to create diverse and talented student bodies and to continue the diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives that are needed now more than ever.

NALP Releases Employment Data for the Class of 2022

This year's Selected Findings show that the vigorous market recovery from the pandemic, combined with the so-called "talent wars," propelled the Class of 2022 beyond even the impressive employment outcomes of the Class of 2021, in several cases shattering employment and salary records altogether. The employment rate for the Class of 2022 was 92.1%, the best employment rate recorded since the Class of 1987, when the rate was just slightly higher, at 92.2%.

NALP believes in fairness, facts and the power of a diverse community.

We work every day to be the best career services, recruitment, and professional development organization in the world because we want the lawyers and law students we serve to have an ethical recruiting system, employment data they can trust, and expert advisers to guide and support them in every stage of their careers
