Jobs for Everyone at UC Irvine Law School View Count: 68

Things just keep getting better for the inaugural class at the U.C. Irvine School of Law. If attending law school tuition-free wasn’t enough, it looks like all 60 member of the school’s first class have earned summer jobs.

The Recorder reports nearly 30 students have jobs with nonprofits and 17 students will be employed by judges, including 11 at the federal level. The remainder will join law firms and prosecutors’ offices.

School officials note in the story that they are using the school’s “honeymoon” period to forge relationships with potential future employers. They also note there is much at stake as they must prove to donors their money is being used properly.

“The people who’ve invested in us are receiving some return on their investment,” said Charles Cannon, the law school’s assistant dean of development and external affairs. He goes on to acknowledge the school’s early success at placing students in public interest positions is at least partially the result of the students attending tuition free.

“There’s no doubt that our complete tuition rebate for the first class has made the proportion of them going into unpaid public interest jobs much higher than other schools,” Cannon said. “We know that this won’t last forever.”
