The Top Ranked Law Schools for Placing Graduates in Jobs in North Carolina

The Top Law Schools for Placing Students in Jobs in the State of North Carolina

This ranking lists the top law schools for placing law graduates in jobs in the State of North Carolina. While on its face the list may surprise you, it is worth noting some of the limitations of this ranking. The list is based on total 2013 graduates employed 9 months after graduation without regard to the type of position. The ABA does not provide data for the type of position broken out on a State by State basis. Since lower ranked law schools typically place a lower percentage of graduates in attorney positions, this ranking includes the 2015 U.S. News ranking for each school.

It also is a little surprising how few graduates from Duke were placed in jobs in the State of North Carolina, but as a top ten institution Duke draws a lot of students from across the country and also places a significant number of students in large firms in New York and D.C.
