A couple of stories to check out. . . second one is for facebook.
EDIT: Wonder if this data is true: Two out of three 2011 law school graduates did not get real legal jobs
As mentioned above, the numbers might not necessarily apply to each other. The other issue I see with that article is that they are using data which covers all the law schools. Even the crappy ones with like 25% employment in full time bar required jobs... some names spring to mind (though I am not 100% on their actual job stats): Thomas Jefferson and Barry and Tuoro and Cooley and what have you.
If you are going to a T14/T1/Strong Regional T2 these numbers are probably not nearly as grim for you personally. If NALP excluded the bottom 50 law schools I bet the numbers would run like 50% employment even using the article's dubious methodology.
