On this page, you will find the employment outcome charts submitted to the ABA and NALP for the previous three years. These charts measure the employment outcomes of our graduates nine months post-graduation. Why 9 Months?
The American Bar Association measures law school graduates placement statistics as of February 15th – usually about nine months after graduation. The ABA, and all law schools,
focus on this number primarily because of the timing of bar examination results. Typically, law students graduate in May and sit for bar exams all over the country in July.
In Pennsylvania, bar examination results are released in mid-October, but in other states such as New York, the results can be as late as the end of November. Many small to mid-size
law firms, government agencies, district attorney’s offices and similar employers are not in a position to hire a new law school graduate until bar passage has been confirmed. Thus,
it is more appropriate to evaluate placement statistics only after nine months.
213 graduates are employed in positions that require admission to the Bar or where the J.D. was an advantage in obtaining and performing the job.
23 graduates are employed in Full-Time, Short Term positions funded by Temple.
