Job Placement Statistics
Like all ABA-accredited law schools, Arizona Summit Law School is required to survey members of its most recent graduating class to ascertain their employment status. In February of each year, law schools report this employment data to the National Association of Law Placement (NALP), the nonprofit education association for law schools and legal employers, which oversees the annual employment survey. The data collected reflect the employment status of each law school’s graduates as of February 15. The American Bar Association requests similar employment data from its American Bar Association-accredited schools. On the subsequent March 15, law schools report this data to the American Bar Association.
Arizona Summit Law School was able to confirm the employment status of 99% (180 out of 181) of its program completers who graduated September 1, 2011, through August 31, 2012. The job placement rate for these graduates was 90.6%. This figure was calculated using the NALP formula for calculating job placement rate. Therefore, the 90.6% job placement rate was calculated by adding together all the employed graduates (163) and then dividing by the number of graduates whose employment status we were able to confirm (180). In accordance with NALP guidelines, the number of employed graduates includes all employment positions, including legal and non-legal positions, permanent and temporary positions, full-time and part-time positions, and any positions funded by Arizona Summit Law School.
In addition to those employed, 3.9% of our graduates were continuing their education full-time in a degree or certificate-granting program.
Our program prepares graduates for the following positions listed by the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC):
Administrative Law Judges, Adjudicators and Hearing Officers
Aribitrators, Mediators and Conciliators
Judges, Magistrate Judges and Magistrates
Law Teachers, Postsecondary
The accrediting agency to which job placement data is reported is the American Bar Association. Job placement data is also reported to the National Association for Legal Professionals and US News and World Report.
