This is the fourth in a series of visualizations on legal employment outcomes for the Class of 2018. Following posts on outcomes in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Texas, here is a visualization for legal employment outcomes of graduates of Ohio law schools for the Class of 2018. (More about the methodology is available at the Illinois post.) Last year's Ohio post is here.
Total jobs, including bar passage-required jobs, worsened slightly. Those bar passage-required jobs dropped from 584 to 571. But total graduates continued to tumble, from 951 to 888, leaving overall placement up a few points, from 72.8% to 76%. Remarkably, Ohio still has nine law schools, but five of them graduated fewer than 100 students, and sixth graduated just 101.
