Top Law Schools for Placing Graduates in Jobs in Massachusetts by Number

If you are planning on attending law school and seeking to gain employment in the state of Massachusetts afterwards then this ranking may be helpful for you to consider your options. This ranking is based on the employment data provided by the ABA and is subject to the limitations of that data.  Since the ABA does not break down employment type by state, it is important to note that this ranking includes all types of jobs and not just law graduates employed as attorneys. Also, the ABA only reports the placements from the top three jurisdictions for each law school and so some schools may be omitted from this list based on that limitation.  For instance, Harvard almost certainly placed more than 5 students in jobs in Massachusetts, but since the top three placement jurisdictions for 2013 Harvard graduates were New York, California and Washington D.C. , the ABA did not report the number of Harvard’s graduate placements in Massachusetts.
