Northern Illinois University College of Law
Ranks in the Top 100 in Employment

May 12, 2015

DeKalb, Ill.--Northern Illinois University College of Law has been ranked in the Top 100 law schools for employment. Using information provided to the American Bar Association, the list appears on the Faculty Lounge blog and was calculated by Matt Leichter of the Law School Tuition Bubble blog. While the overall ABA figures show that 87.9% of the NIU Class of 2014 obtained employment within 10 months of graduation, Leichter’s ranking determined that 59.6% of graduates were employed in full-time, long-term, bar-passage-required jobs.

The NIU College of Law ranked higher than more than half of the 203 ABA-accredited law schools in the nation.
