Job Placement Statistics
Like all ABA-accredited law schools, Florida Coastal School of Law is required to survey the members of its most recent graduating class to ascertain their employment status. In February of each year, law schools report this employment data to the National Association for Law Placement (NALP), the non-profit educational association for law schools and legal employers which oversees the annual employment survey. The data collected reflect the employment status of each law school’s graduates as of February 15. Law schools subsequently report this same employment data to the ABA. Florida Coastal School of Law was able to confirm 553 of the 562 graduates' (or 98.4%) employment status of its program completers who graduated between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013 (the time period set forth by NALP). The job placement rate for the 2013 graduates, 285 of the 349 graduates (or 81.7%) provided us with information. Our job placement rate was calculated by adding together all of our employed graduates (349) divided by 562 (the number of graduates whose employment status we were able to confirm). 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 Florida Coastal School of Law.
In addition to the number of graduates working, 1.6% (9) of Florida Coastal’s graduating class was seeking an advanced degree.
