The landscape for legal graduates is changing dramatically, with more jobs becoming available in the digital discovery sector, according to Inside Counsel. Recent statistics from the ABA show that 57 percent of graduates from the class of 2013 were employed full-time in a job that required a law degree nine months following graduation.

With the changes in technology, many law schools are not changing their curriculum to match the industry. Law firms across the country are changing with the times, but law schools are slow to follow. This has hurt the industry and it has helped the industry all at the same time.
