June 27, 2012 My school beats almost everyone
According to a recent New York Law Journal article, 59 percent of recent grads from my school (Touro) have full-time, J.D. required jobs- more than any other NY school except Top 20 schools like Cornell and Columbia. We even beat Fordham (top 50) and Cardozo (almost top 50).
The most interesting result besides ours was CUNY’s. According to conventional wisdom within the legal academy, it is really, really, really, really important that law school be as much like practice as possible. The school that follows that model best is CUNY. And their full-time employment rate (36 percent) is the third worst in the state.
