Not to pick scabs, but just as we see the usual suspects among law schools at the top of the heap, we see the same crowd at the bottom—of the eleven schools identified on each of these last two charts, nine schools are on both.
One last chart, and a concluding thought. This is from the estimable and praiseworthy “Law School Transparency” project, and it shows the top schools by graduate employment rates as well—confirming our now presumably settled expectations of who’s at the top of the pecking order.
This runs from #1 UVaat 95.6% to #22 Iowa at 76.3% (different methodology from the NLJ’s, supra)
You may be tempted about now to wring your hands and turn on HBO. But I actually have some thoughts about how to help alleviate this depressing situation, in the form of a new initiative that has hit the ground running. I’ll report on that in the next few days.
