Law school graduates last year obtained long-term, full-time legal positions at a slightly higher pace than those from the year before, the American Bar Association reported Wednesday. In data compiled by the ABA’s Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, 57 percent of the class of 2013 -- the largest graduating class ever -- had jobs requiring bar passage compared to 56.2 percent in 2012. Another 10.1 percent of graduates landed jobs where a law degree was an advantage. That is also up slightly. Learn more from the ABA survey.
