Unemployment up among law school grads

12.8 percent of 2012 grads don’t have jobs

Law school grads are still facing a tough job market, according to the National Association for Placement’s new employment report.

The report collected data from the class of 2012 in mid-February, about nine months after the grads left their alma maters. Findings show that the unemployment rate among these grads is 12.8 percent—a 0.7 percent increase from unemployment stats for the class of 2011. The employment rate among the 2012 grads is 84.7 percent—and that figure hasn’t been so low since 1994.
