UMass Law outperformed four area private schools in 2018 employment rates.

86% of UMass Law's 2018 graduates are employed or are pursuing graduate degrees, while 80% secured employment in bar-required or JD-advantage positions.

58% of the class secured full-time, long-term employment in positions that required them to pass the bar exam. This surpasses four area private law schools with employment rates ranging from 34% to 57%.

For the third year in a row, UMass Law ranked highly in percentage of graduates in long-term, full-time employment in government or public service. Class of 2018 graduates ranked second in New England.

“We are excited to see our law students outperforming many of their private law school peers while also delivering thousands of hours of pro bono legal services to organizations and individuals across the region,” Chancellor Johnson said.
