Public interest outcomes

Postby tncats » Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:24 pm

I've been using LST to evaluate the percentages of public interest employment a law school produces, but where can I find data about the types of PI organizations reached from each school?

For example, which schools place in high impact PI organizations vs. local legal aid offices, or maybe somewhere in between?

There is no data on this, only anecdote.

Ahh, that's disappointing. Thanks. I'll just poke around on TLS for anecdata, I guess.

OP - also very anecdotal but, in addition to TLS, you may want to look around on the websites of organizations that do work you're interested in and see what schools are represented among newer attorneys. Linked-in and whatnot might also be helpful.

Different but related question - Is there anywhere one can find (non-entry level) salary data for PI organizations / employers? A lot of entry-level salary data is available but struggling to find much info beyond that.
