Law school no. 1 for post-graduate employment

The University of Chicago Law School produced the highest percentage of 2012 graduates with full-time, long-term law jobs that require passing the Bar exam, according to a study by the National Law Journal.

An analysis by Law School Transparency, a law school reform group, found that 55.1 percent of all 2012 law school graduates are employed in full-time, long-term law jobs that required passing the Bar. Of 215 total 2012 graduates, 94.5 percent of UChicago Law School graduates were employed in such jobs, according to the National Law Journal.
