Employment Summary Reports

Employment Summary Reports

The University of St. Thomas School of Law Office of Career & Professional Development conducts an annual employment survey of recent graduates. Information from this annual survey is used to report to various agencies including the American Bar Association (ABA), National Association of Legal Career Professionals (NALP), and the U.S. News & World Report (USNWR).

Three years of both ABA and NALP employment summary reports are included on this page. These reports are generated by the ABA and by NALP based on confidential and anonymous employment information collected by the Office of Career & Professional Development. Any identifying information (i.e., employment data with small sample sizes) is removed from the NALP employment summary reports. 

Employment data & U.S. News rankings

The U.S. News rankings count all long-term, full-time, bar passage-required and J.D. advantage jobs toward a law school's employment statistic, even if those positions are the same positions graduates held prior to enrolling in law school. This methodology benefits law schools with part-time programs, where many students maintain prior employment while in school and after graduation. UST Law does not offer a part-time J.D. program.
