Employment Statistics Getting Less Transparent

Postby shoeshine » Sun Sep 25, 2011 8:47 pm

Apparently the ABA wants to keep letting law schools report 90-100% employment rates without any mention of what type of jobs these students are working in.

On Sept. 23, the section's questionnaire committee will finalize the 2011 questionnaire, which asks about the class of 2010. Additional reforms are slated for 2012. If nothing changes, the section will collect fewer job characteristics data than it has collected in prior years. Apparently, whether a job requires bar passage or only prefers a J.D., or whether a job is full- or part-time, are now too obscure to define without many more meetings.
