Graduate Employment Data

Students at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law benefit from the School of Law’s commitment to practice-based learning and the emphasis placed on acquiring law clerk, intern and extern experiences during their law school years.  The combination of these experiences, in conjunction with their academic studies, prepare students for considering a variety of career paths upon graduation.

We discuss employment facts and trends during our Admissions open houses, orientation sessions, and in communications to admitted and current students. We invite prospective and admitted students to attend these events and to contact the School of Law with any questions at admissions@law.umaryland.edu

Employment Outcomes



*Employment information is based on data from graduating law students. UM Carey Law provides employment data to organizations including National Association for Legal Career Professionals (NALP), the American Bar Association, and U.S.News. Employment categories and geographic regions are defined by NALP (see http://www.nalp.org/uploads/NationalSummaryChartforSchools2010.pdf). For a review of national law graduate employment data, visit http://www.nalp.org/research.

**The percentage employed is derived from the number of employed graduates divided by the number of graduates whose status is Known at the time of reporting out of the total of graduates in the class.

***The law firm and judicial clerkship categories are broken down to reflect the percentage of graduates within those categories who are in a particular type of firm or clerkship. Judicial clerkships counted in the clerkship category figure reflect clerkships served as the first job immediately after graduation. For more information about UM Carey Law judicial programs, visit http://www.law.umaryland.edu/employers/services.html.

****Reportable salary information does not include bonuses, part-time salaries, or other non-traditional compensation packages, and some graduate choose not to disclose their salaries. The Career Development Office does not collect information pertaining to bonuses, part-time and hourly wages, and benefit packages. For questions regarding law graduate salaries, please contact the CDO at careerdv@law.umaryland.edu or we encourage you to see the NALP Salaries & Compensation data at: http://www.nalp.org/recentgraduates.
