This is the second in a series of visualizations on legal employment outcomes for the Class of 2016. Following up on a post on outcomes in Texas, here is a visualization for legal employment outcomes of graduates of New York law schools for the Class of 2016. (More about the methodology is available at the Texas post.)
Total graduates among the New York law schools dropped from 4083 to 3811. (There were about 4500 in the Class of 2014.) That helped overall placement rise from 79.3% to 83.4% in full-time, long-term, bar passage-required and J.D.-advantage jobs. That's even despite the fact that Columbia cut its law school funded placements in such positions from 28 down to 12. Overall jobs declined slightly.
