Report Finds Uptick In Salaries Of New Law School Grads

According to a new report from the National Association for Law Placement (NALP), law school graduates in the class of 2017 are seeing median salaries of $70,000, up $5,000 from the previous class. Citing the NALP report, the ABA Journal writes that the salary increase comes as larger law firms hired more new graduates than at any time since the recession. Employment rates for law graduates are also at the highest point since the recession, but the NALP report attributes this to a decrease in graduates, rather than an increase in job numbers.
