I was clicking around and somehow found this - https://law.duke.edu/employdata2016/

There is info on the site plus a link to ABA info, which look basically identical. I didn't do the math but it looks like it was a pretty good year.

Duke was 93% bar passage required.

Stanford doesn't have numbers for the class of '15 yet.

Is that just for CA, or nationwide bar passage?

It means the job requires bar passage so I don't think CA vs. nationwide matters.

Take that USNWR.

In all seriousness, any theories on why Stanford sends a higher number of people to professional positions? It's still <10 students, so probably within 1 std dev of error, but interesting nonetheless.

I think it's the tech startups. Honestly, that's not a bad outcome at all.

Big time performance from Duke. Would be great if someone could compile these in the OP or another thread somewhere.

Doesn't seem to differentiate between federal and state clerkships.

Also, not exactly what you asked for, but somewhat related. Here is a year by year comparison of % in Biglaw+Fed clerkships from 2010 through 2014:

T14 Schools Average
2010- 65.8%
2011- 56.7%
2012- 64.2%
2013- 65.6%
2014- 68.0%


T15-26 Schools Average (In terms of placement, not USNWR. Vandy, UT, UCLA, USC, BC, BU, GW, Fordham, ND, WUSTL, Emory, and UIUC. These same 12 schools have made up spots 15 through 26, except for UIUC being 27th in 2011 and 2012 (W&L and UCI bumped them out), and Emory being 27th in 2013 (UCI bumped them out)

2010- 35.3%
2011- 27.6%
2012- 31.3%
2013- 34.3%
2014- 36.4%

So 2014>2010>2013>>2012>>>>2011. So far, it looks like 2015 will be a few percentage points improvement on 2014 for both groups, and the best year since increased transparency started.
