We know that going to law school is much more than just the three-year experience of earning your J.D. It is also the conduit that leads you to the first job of your legal career. As you consider attending law school, keep these facts in mind:
- More than 95% of our Class of 2012 were employed or pursuing an advanced degree within 9 months of graduation. For more details, here are the ABA reports from our last three graduating classes.
- Each year our students are recruited by employers from a number of out-of-state markets including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago. Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, and Washington D.C.
- In the past 5 years, Alabama Law Graduates have taken their first job after law school in 29 states and the district of Columbia. Alabama Law has alumni in every state except Wyoming. Our alumni are literal proof that your Alabama J.D. can take you anywhere you want to go.
From your first year until well after your graduation, our Career Services Office will assist you in each step of the process of creating your legal career. The Office hosts frequent seminars on topics including job markets, interview tips, and summer internships. You will also be invited to attend special programs on judicial clerkships and non-traditional jobs. The Career Services staff is available for individual meetings, and our students frequently use the staff for assistance in finding, and getting, the right job. Our Career Services Office has committed itself to providing all interested students with the personal attention that they need. You will see that at Alabama, your first steps into the legal profession will not be taken alone.
