More than 31 percent of Thomas Jefferson School of Law's graduates had not gotten any job at all nine months out of school, according to NLJ, which cited American Bar Association data.
Unemployment could be particularly painful for Thomas Jefferson Law grads. Its graduates have an average debt load of $168,800 — more than any other law school, according to U.S. News & World Report.
Other California law schools also had relatively high number of new graduates who hadn't secured any work nine months out of school, according to NLJ.
The report about grim job prospects at these schools is hardly surprising, given the nearly constant negative drumbeat of negative news about the legal industry.
In March, the ABA Journal reported that just half of all law school graduates had the kind of permanent, full-time legal jobs that most people probably went to law school to get.
