Thoughts on Law Schools Hiring Graduates?

Postby efeinste » Tue Nov 26, 2013 8:19 am

I ran a few searches but didn't find anything. If there's already a thread for this, send me the link.

I expect law schools to hire at least some of their graduating class, but some of the T-14 schools are in the double digits. According to LST, NYU hired 12% of 2012 graduates, UVA hired 14.8% of 2012 graduates and Columbia, though not in the double digits, hired 8.1% of its graduating class.

I understand that these numbers are not necessarily reason to be alarmed, and that there could be a legitimate reason for a school to hire a chunk of its students or place them in school-funded organizations...but these numbers are pretty high. What I'd really like to do is look at a breakdown of this percentage to see exactly what positions these graduates are getting. Unfortunately, I don't think that information is available. If it is, please let me know.

So, is there anything meaningful we can do with these statistics? If so, what's the best approach?
