Only 55% of 2011 Law School Grads Have Full Time Jobs

2011 graduates are not surprised by the recent release of job statistics about the law market.  They are not surprised because a lot of my fellow class graduates are still looking for legal jobs because fewer and fewer companies and firms are hiring.

The ABA Journal published an article announcing that only 55% of law graduates, who finished school in 2011, have full time jobs.  Stating that it is a tough job market is an understatement.

A 2011 law graduate and attorney friend, who I deeply admire, told me the other day, “I think employers are mistaking our [2011 law graduates] desperation for stupidity.”

The ABA Journal also published an article saying that only 65% of employed 2011 law graduates work at jobs that require bar passage.
