Chicago-Kent submits data regarding the employment status of graduates from the preceding year to the American Bar Association (ABA), the National Association for Law Placement (NALP), and U.S. News & World Report on a yearly basis.
These entities establish their own survey standards and definitions, as well as the form in which information is to be submitted. For detailed explanations of each organization's data collection requirements, click on the individual organization's name above. This data is obtained through a survey administered to graduates at the time of graduation and 10 months after. The tables contained in the links below outline the employment outcomes and salary statistics of the most recent graduating classes ten months post-graduation.
If you have any questions about collection of employment data, please contact the Career Services Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABA Standard 509 Employment Data
Please note: Information on employment outcomes for the Class of 2020 may not reflect a particular law school’s typical results in this area. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, bar admission exams were canceled or delayed in many jurisdictions, thus making it more challenging for graduates to secure employment by the annual Graduate Employment Status Date of March 15. Please reference the 3 years of employment outcome data posted on the ABA Required Disclosures webpage of each ABA-Approved Law School (below) or at www.abarequireddisclosures.org.
