Small law office work? JD not required positions?

I am asking because percentage in the first thread don't add up to 100%, and I would like to understand more of what the difference means. Thank you!

Look at the ABA Employment Summaries. There are more breakdowns there.

I wouldn't expect them to change all that much year to year, so you can be reasonably confident w/ your decision based on past years. Also, this year isn't much better than last year for predicting employment when you graduate in 3 years.

In short, don't fret over this year's stats too much.
