Job Placement

ASU Law is top 20 in the nation for placing graduates in real legal jobs. Within 10 months of graduation, 87 percent of our class of 2016 graduates found employment in full-time, longterm, non-university funded jobs that require bar passage or in which a JD is preferred. This is well above the national employment average of 73 percent for all ABA-accredited law schools. Our commitment to your success continues long after you graduate through our Law for Life program.
