Data Shows Job Outlook for New Lawyers Not Strong

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Data was released last week by the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar that shows the job outlook for brand new lawyers is still bleak, according to the ABA Journal.

Of all the 2013 law school graduates, 57 percent were employed in jobs that are full-time, long-term and require passing the bar as of February 15 of this year.

This number has increased just a little bit from 2012. The number was 56.2 percent that year. In 2013, graduates had jobs in long-term, full-time positions that preferred a law degree at a rate of 10.1 percent. This is a small increase compared to the class of 2012, which had a 9.5 percent rate for the category.

The number of graduates from 2013 who are unemployed increased to 11.2 percent from 10.6 percent in 2012.

The graduating class in 2013 was the largest in history, with 46,776 students. This was an increase of 412 students from the class of 2012.

Government employment for the class of 2013 increased to 10.6 percent from 10 percent for the class of 2012. Employment for graduates in public interest jobs dropped from 5.9 percent to 4.8 percent for the class of 2013 compared to 2012.

The change in numbers mentioned in government employment could be due in part to the fact that public defender jobs are now listed in the government jobs category instead of the public interest jobs category.
