2016 Employment Statistics Explained

Comparing employment statistics from across different law schools can feel overwhelming, so here it is straight:

From our 2016 Class, 106 of our 128 graduates are employed with two additional graduates pursuing a graduate degree full time. Of those employed, 67.2 percent are employed in Bar Passage Required jobs. Bar Passage Required jobs typically are jobs that require one to be a practicing attorney. This ranks the University of Idaho College of Law in the top third in the nation, strongly in our region and highest in the state for employment in Bar Passage Required Jobs.

Employment Statistics for the UI College of Law Class of 2016

  • 67.2 percent of graduates found full time work requiring Bar Passage.
  • 6.3 percent found full time and 0.78 part time work requiring JD Advantage.
  • 3.1 percent found full time and 3.1 part time work in a Professional Position.
  • 1.6 percent are in a part time, non-professional position.
  • 10.9 percent are unemployed and seeking employment.
  • 3.1 percent are unemployed and not seeking employment.
  • 1.6 percent are pursuing a graduate degree.
  • 1.5 percent selected Other.

Our bar passage rate is 67.47 percent — the highest in Idaho. Included in our tuition, the College of Law offers all students the “Bar Exam Success Toolkit,” (BEST) a set of initiatives and resources designed to comprehensively support student success on the bar throughout the entire law school experience, from orientation up until the exam. BEST includes a BARBRI Bar Review Course.

Factoring in J.D. Advantage jobs, 74 percent of our most recent class have found employment because of their University of Idaho College of Law Juris Doctor degree. Our 2016 graduates are working in Idaho (70 graduates), Washington (16), Nevada (three) and beyond. They are working across the spectrum of legal jobs in law firms, government agencies, public interests and in industry. Our graduates are serving in state and local clerkships.

In summary, the University of Idaho College of Law is preparing our students to graduate and find employment that requires one to be a practicing attorney. These graduates are doing so with less debt. Our resident tuition is one of the lowest in Idaho, Washington, Utah and Oregon, and the lowest of all public schools in those same states.
