Two Vanderbilt law students trying to collect more jobs information from law schools finally have a taker.The Law School Transparency site is here.
The Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Fla., has agreed to disclose more detailed job statistics, according to the blog Shilling Me Softly and the website of the students' nonprofit group, Law School Transparency.
The group was formed by law students Patrick Lynch and Kyle McEntee to collect more employment data that will show how much value graduates get from their law degrees.
Law School Transparency sent a letter to 199 law schools this July seeking data about each law school graduate in categories that include their employer type and name, whether their position is full- or part-time, whether the job requires a law license, and their salaries after nine months. The group asked law schools to indicate whether they would participate by Sept. 10.
