By the Numbers

Choosing a law school—or whether to go to law school—can be one of the most important decisions you will make in life. But you are often asked to make that decision without all the information necessary to have an informed process. Through By the Numbers, IAALS offers data-fueled tools that give prospective students access to meaningful, individualized information about the law school options available to them.

Objective:

  • Provide a free, publicly available tool to give prospective students access to meaningful, individualized information about the law school options available to them.

Law Jobs: By the Numbers™ is our interactive online tool that uses American Bar Association employment data to give prospective law students, researchers, and media the most transparent and complete law school employment rate information available. It takes the mystery out of employment statistics for law school graduates, and let's prospective law students make informed decisions when deciding whether to go to law school and, if so, which school to choose.

IAALS formerly housed this work under its Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers initiative until 2018.

These calculators are designed to be informational and educational tools only. The data underlying the calculators are updated yearly. The ABA releases data yearly, but updates that data periodically and without notice, and those updates may not be reflected in the calculator data. Third-party formulas are approximate. Although every effort was made to make the numbers as accurate as possible, any reliance of the user on the results produced by the calculator is at the user’s own risk.

We are experiencing technical difficulties displaying the 2018 employment data. This tool is under maintenance.
