Kaplan press release:
According to a Kaplan Bar Review survey of over 700 law school graduates from the class of 2012, the vast majority of tomorrow’s attorneys who collected their JDs give their law schools high marks. 37% of law school graduates gave their law school education an “A” grade, while 53% gave it a “B”. Only 9% gave their legal education a “C” grade; 1% scored it a “D”. No respondents gave their law school education an “F”. ...
It’s the toughest job market for new lawyers in nearly 20 years, but the survey finds optimism in the face of adversity. While 56% of recent law school graduates surveyed said they had not found a job in the legal field yet, 62% expressed confidence that they would find employment within the next three months.
