National Law Journal Ranks Seton Hall Law #17 in the Nation for Employment

The National Law Journal recently released employment data for 2017 law school graduates, Seton Hall Law remains one of the nation’s top law schools on this critical metric.

Seton Hall Law ranks #17 of more than 200 law schools “in placing their 2017 graduates into fulltime, long-term law jobs that require passing the bar and were not funded by the schools themselves—widely viewed as the gold standard for new lawyer employment.”

And Seton Hall Law ranks #26 “in placing 2017 graduates into either fulltime, long-term jobs that require bar passage, or jobs for which a J.D. offers an advantage.”

Among New York City area law schools, Seton Hall Law ranks third, after Columbia and NYU for fulltime, long-term employment, placing 82.63% of its 2017 graduates in jobs that require bar passage and 88.62% in jobs that either require bar passage or for which a J.D. is an advantage.
