The NALP Foundation and NALP have released their joint study, Law School Alumni Employment & Satisfaction for the Class of 2017, their fourth such report focusing on Canadian law schools. Reflecting the legal profession's increasing focus on equity, diversity and inclusion, this year’s study includes new information about diverse and first-generation graduates, as well as data on educational debt and the impact of COVID-19 and the economic downturn.
Among the key findings:
- High employment and satisfaction rates: Both the employment rate (95%) and career satisfaction levels (82%) remain remarkably high.
- High mobility levels: 61% of alumni have held two or more sequential positions since graduation.
- Limited impact of COVID-19 and the economic downturn.
- Outstanding educational debt (in Canadian dollars) varied considerably.
This year’s study reflects data from 306 responses from four Canadian law schools' graduates; data was collected over a four-month period from September 9 to December 31, 2020.
