Sobering new statistics illustrate the difficulty of turning a law degree into a full time practice position, unless your degree comes from a top tier law school.
The American Bar Association has – for the first time – provided numbers for full-time, long-term legal jobs landed by recent grads. Nationally, only 55 percent of the class of 2011 found such work by nine months after graduation.
Figures for Virginia law schools are as follows:
|University of Virginia||94.7%|
|George Mason University
|University of Richmond||59.6%|
|Washington & Lee||55%|
|William & Mary||54.9%|
|Appalachian School of Law||30.7%|
