Law school ranks #6 nationally, #1 in New England for getting grads jobs on the open market
UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law ranks #6 in the nation and #1 in New England for securing law school graduates jobs on the open market, or in non-law school funded positions.
“Our graduates continue to be some of the most employable lawyers in the country,” said Dean Megan Carpenter. “Their drive coupled with mentorship from our expert faculty and experiences in class and in residencies make them clear standouts in the marketplace.”
96.7% of the class of 2019 was employed within 10 months of graduation. 80% of those graduates are working in jobs that require bar passage and 86% completed a legal residency, or a legal work experience, before graduating.
“You come to law school to get a job,” said Carpenter. “We prepare our students like no one else. Knowing how to interview, to make connections, and to demonstrate experience are skills that not only set students up for success now, but well into the future.”
UNH Franklin Pierce alumni practice law in more than 80 countries and direct policy and practice in governments, Am Law 100 firms, corporations, and non-profits. They serve in roles across industries including technology, health care, and public interest.
