With the COVID-19 pandemic comfortably in the rear-view, Boston College Law School graduates are back at work in record numbers. The Class of 2022 figures—the most recent available from the American Bar Association and used in next year’s US News & World Report rankings—are the strongest in decades, with 95.3 percent overall employed. Employment in full-time, long-term, bar-passage-required/JD advantage positions reached an impressive 92.6 percent.
The National Law Journal ranks BC Law 16th among its “go to” schools for big firm hiring. Defined as firms that have more than 500 attorneys, Big Law is the destination of the majority of BC Law graduates, though a healthy number head for smaller firms and jobs in government and public interest sectors.
Looking forward, members of the Class of 2023, which started out with remote classes and asynchronous learning, have already made great strides in lining up jobs in advance of taking the Bar Exam. Their chances of success are buttressed by the Law School’s longstanding reputation as one of the country’s top law schools, which rose to 29th in this year’s US News rankings.
