Employment Success

ABA-accredited law schools annually collect employment statistics from the most recently graduated class in a continuing effort to evaluate and adjust their programs and offerings. Oklahoma City University School of Law, through Law Career Services, collects this information from recent graduates and reports the aggregated information to the ABA for reporting on national trends and indices. This information is compiled at the national level by the ABA and The Association for Legal Career Professionals (“NALP”), which indicates the status of post law school hiring across the nation and provides prospective employers and other interested consumers with a standardized point of comparison.
