Launching Lawyer Leaders

Elon Law graduates are excelling professionally. For detailed employment information, please review the charts below and the links to Elon Law’s employment summaries to the American Bar Association.

*Prior to 2014, the reports above were submitted to reflect employment data nine months following graduation. In 2014, per ABA guidelines, reports reflect employment data ten months following graduation. In calculating multi-year averages, Elon uses data from reports submitted to the ABA.

* Information on employment outcomes for the Class of 2020 may not reflect a particular law school’s typical results in this area. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, bar admission exams were canceled or delayed in many jurisdictions, thus making it more challenging for graduates to secure employment by the annual Graduate Employment Status Date of March 15. Please reference the 3 years of employment outcome data posted on the ABA Required Disclosures webpage of each ABA-Approved Law School or at www.abarequireddisclosures.org.
