A consortium of 28 law schools called Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers has created an interactive website that compiles school’s jobs data from various legal sources including the American Bar Association, U.S. News & World Report, the National Association for Legal Career Professionals and Law School Transparency. The site Law Jobs: By the Numbers allows users to customize searches of ABA jobs data. Users may compare law school employment statistics using any of those three formulas or enter their own search criteria, the National Law Journal reports. "The tool is a natural outgrowth of the law school employment data that is now available," said Alli Gerkman, incoming director of Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers. "It lets users create their own rates and, because we have made the formulas completely transparent and accessible, it teaches them how different criteria can impact the employment rates reported by schools, publications and organizations." ?
