This is the fifth in a series of visualizations on legal employment outcomes for the Class of 2016. Following posts on outcomes in Texas, New York, Illinois, and California, here is a visualization for legal employment outcomes of graduates of Florida law schools for the Class of 2016. (More about the methodology is available at the Texas post.)
Florida Coastal disclosed data this year, and Western Michigan University-Cooley's Tampa campus did not disclose campus-specific data, so it's hard to make year-over-year comparisons in the aggregate. But the total placement rate among the 2479 statewide graduates was 65.4%, without a single school-funded job. (That's down slightly over last year, but Florida Coastal has far more graduates than Cooley's Tampa campus.) The University of Florida, Florida State, and Florida International have almost identical placement, very similar to last year.
