Following up on yesterday's post on outcomes in DC-Maryland-Virginia, and last year's post on outcomes in New York, here is a visualization for legal employment outcomes of graduates of New York law schools for the Class of 2015. (More about the methodology is available at the DC-Maryland-Virginia post.)
The number of graduates dropped significantly, from about 4500 for the Class of 2014 to just under 4100 for the Class of 2015. Law school-funded positions have never been very popular, but they declined slightly, from 93 to 73. And as has been the case, the improvements are largely because classes are smaller. There were 3407 full-time, long-term, bar passage required and J.D. advantage jobs, including school-funded positions, for the Class of 2014. That raw figure actually declined somewhat, to 3237 positions for the Class of 2015. But the percentage of the Class of 2015 securing such jobs improved, from to 75.2% to 79.3%.
As always, please notify me of any corrections or errata.
