The NALP Foundation for Law Career Research and Education, a 501(c)(3) organization, was incorporated in 1996 to ensure that the legal community and society at large benefit from an objective source of in-depth research and information in the areas of legal career planning, lawyer recruitment, attorney development, diversity and ethics. The support of leading law schools, legal employers, corporations, and individuals throughout the legal community has enabled the Foundation to fulfill that essential role.
The Foundation has taken the lead on projects of importance to the profession, including initiating the first longitudinal study of lawyer careers, providing benchmark research on associate retention, documenting attorney contributions to public service, and surveying professional development activities during a pandemic, civil unrest and economic crisis.

Law School Alumni Employment & Satisfaction
The NALP Foundation and NALP have provided the legal industry with the Study of Law School Alumni Employment & Satisfaction since launching our first report on the Class of 2010. The study measures employment status and career satisfaction three years after graduation, exploring an array of satisfaction dimensions in order to help gain a better understanding and insight into how the law school experience prepared law students for post-graduation employment. Interested law schools can join the current study here.
