Recent law grads: jobs still bleak

A disappointing report from the ABA: the job market for recent law school grads isn’t where it used to be. Only 57% of 2013 law school grads were employed in “long-term, full-time legal jobs requiring bar passage.” According to the article, big law hiring is up, as is the percentage of grads working in business or the government. The article is suggestive that small firms (and mid-sized firms and big firms less than 500 attorneys) aren’t hiring at the same rate.
