NALP Report Database

Each summer, NALP-member law schools receive a report from NALP that summarizes employment data for the second-most recent graduating class. The employment data contained in the NALP report are highly valuable to prospective students. Because NALP already collects the employment data and distributes the report to schools, there is no cost associated with publishing the reports. Starting with the class of 2010, LST requested that schools make these reports available to the public. At the time, no school made its report public.

This page tracks public NALP reports as known to LST. In most cases, the reports have been provided to us by law school deans, but sometimes schools publish the reports on their websites without telling us. If your school, or a school you are considering attending, has not published its NALP report, please contact the school and ask that they make this important resource available.

Refusing to share these data harms not only the reputation of the schools who aren't on this list, but of the legal education system at large. Law schools are tasked with training the legal professionals of the future. They hold students to honor codes, require them to attend a class on professional responsibility and ethics, and send them into a profession where they must uphold the values of that profession on a daily basis. However, when it comes to their own conduct, too many schools take a position that the minimal level of integrity required to maintain ABA accreditation is good enough. Our hope is that schools who value their academic and social leadership roles will go beyond the bare minimum.

Note A "full" report includes the "Summary Report" and "Table 12–15," A "partial" report includes only the "Summary Report."
