UVA Law Backs its Fellowships (school-funded jobs) wi/ stats

Interesting article. UVA Says that out of the 40 school-funded positions (fellowships) given in 2010, 32 had full time JD required jobs once the fellowship was over, 2 were in full-time JD advantage jobs, 1 in a full time JD not required position and 5 did not respond.

Assuming the worst, this means atleast 80% of their school-funded positions turn into full-time JD required positions. This is interesting with the bad stigma school-funded positions get on this board where some suggest that most are unemployed after these fellowships are over.

It does, however, shed some light onto the extremely low salary for these fellowships ($30K mentioned in the article).

I also realize that this is unregulated data provided by UVA, so it requires the assumption they are being truthful.

Went to UVa's ASW and they reiterated this same point. Many students consciously go into these fellowships to get a foot into those near impossible positions for fresh law students. The students at the open forum also said most kids get hired on to permanent positions after their fellowships. Nice work UVa.

Why did you post this anonymously?

Anyhow, this really isn't all that surprising too me. People kept bashing the school funded rate at UVA as they quickly assumed that the positions were similar to those at GWU. Also, from what I know these individuals also qualify for the Virginia Loan Forgiveness Program. Even if they only made $30,000 a year they at least should have had their loan payments covered by the school during the course of their employment.

Nice find but we should all keep in mind this is coming from UVA's career services not aba.

Nonetheless, schools like Berkeley should take note and adopt similar programs to help their 72.6% employed at graduation rate. http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandr ... eley-03016
