Job Placement Statistics

Like all ABA-accredited law schools, Charlotte School of Law is required to survey members of its most recent graduating class to ascertain their employment status. In April of each year, law schools report this employment data to the American Bar Association and NALP, a non-profit education association for law schools and legal employers that also conducts an annual employment survey. The data collected reflect the employment status of each law school's graduates as of March 15th.

Charlotte School of Law was able to confirm the employment status of 96.4% (398 of 413) of its program completers who graduated September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014. The job placement rate for these graduates was 78.6%. This figure was calculated using the NALP formula for calculating job placement rate. Therefore, the 78.6% job placement rate was calculated by adding together all of the employed graduates (313) and then dividing by the number of graduates whose employment status we were able to confirm (398). In accordance with NALP guidelines, the number of employed graduates includes all employment positions, including legal and non-legal positions, permanent and temporary positions, full-time and part-time positions, and any positions funded by Charlotte School of Law.

In addition to those employed, 1.69% of our graduates were continuing their education full-time in a degree- or certificate-granting program.

The accrediting agency to which job placement data is reported is the American Bar Association. Job placement data is also reported to NALP.

To engage in the authorized practice of law in North Carolina and most states and territories, an individual must pass a Bar examination and submit to a character and fitness examination. Prospective students should contact the Board of Bar Examiners of the State of North Carolina (www.ncble.org), or the relevant licensing agency for any other state(s) in which you may be interested in practicing law, to determine the relevant state licensing requirements.
