Despite a Record Job Market for Class of 2022 Law Graduates, Outcomes Remain Unequal

The 49th edition of NALP's hallmark annual research report, Jobs & JDs, Employment and Salaries of New Law Graduates, shows that the Class of 2022 had the highest employment rate in 35 years, but disparities in employment outcomes by race/ethnicity and level of parental education persist, with graduates of color and first-generation college students experiencing lower levels of employment in bar admission required/anticipated positions.
