On this page, you will find the employment outcome reports submitted to the ABA and NALP for the previous three years. These reports contain details about the employment outcomes of our graduates ten months post-graduation.

Why Ten Months?

The American Bar Association measures law school graduates placement statistics as of March 15th – usually about ten 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 ten months.
