Local law school has one of worst employment records
The publication Business Insider has published a list of American law schools with the worst employment records -- that is, percent of 2011 grads that were unemployed or seeking employment nine months after graduation. The data are from the Wall Street Journal. Fourth worst is San Diego's Thomas Jefferson School of Law: 31.36% were unemployed or seeking employment in the period. Only 27% were employed in a job requiring a JD. Some 55% passed the bar the first time, versus the state average of 72%.
