After the JD

After the JD is a longitudinal study that follows law school graduates in the first ten years of their careers. It is the largest and most ambitious study ever undertaken of the legal profession, and it aims to create a definitive picture of how the early careers of lawyers develop in the early twenty-first century. The focus of the study is to define and explain the multiple factors that affect, if not determine, the career trajectories of law graduates.

Two publications from this study, After the JD: The First 10 Years and the most recently released After the JD II, are available for purchase in the Bookstore.
