Placement Stats...

Postby disciullo » Mon Feb 01, 2010 11:13 am

Greetings from Drexel! I hope this note finds everyone well.

Before the holidays, I received questions on career placement and salary information. I apologize for the delay in posting this response. The Office of Career and Professional Development was still gathering information at that time. Here is what they have gathered thus far.

As always, don't hesitate to visit their site for more information or to contact their office for specific questions/concerns.




Employment Statistics on the Inaugural Class: Class of 2009
(Updated January 6, 2010)

• Total 2009 graduates: 159

Number of 2009 Graduates:
• In full-time legal jobs (includes attorney positions, as well as post-grad law clerks and contract attorneys working full-time): 96
• In part-time legal jobs: 8
• In non-legal jobs (full-time or part-time) (includes legal assistants and paralegals, as well as jobs outside the legal profession): 16
• Enrolled in full-time LLM programs: 5
• Unemployed and seeking work: 21
• Whose status is unknown: 12
• Not seeking work: 1

• Number of Students Working in Legal Jobs (Full-Time or Part-Time) Plus LLMs Divided By Number of Students Whose Status is Known/ Those Not Seeking Work = 110/146 = 75.34%

• Number of Students Working in Any Capacity Divided by Those Whose Status is Known (NALP reporting formula) = 121/147 = 82.31%
