McGeorge Employment Statistics

McGeorge graduates are well prepared and well positioned to build careers in private practice firms, government agencies, non-profit legal organizations, and a host of alternative legal positions. The staff of the Career Services Office (CDO) works with students individually to identify career goals and tailor a job search plan that incorporates recruiting opportunities, professional development, and networking — the main source of jobs for all law graduates nationwide. Utilizing a wide variety of resources and services, we support our students and graduates as they transition to practice and join the ranks of our 13,000+ strong alumni network.

McGeorge reports employment data about its graduates to a number of legal organizations, including the American Bar Association (ABA) and the National Association for Law Placement (NALP). The data reported to the ABA and NALP is used by US News & World Report. These organizations utilize different methodologies, categories, and definitions when they collect and report on employment data. These variations may cause slight differences in their employment reports. The employment outcomes noted below are published in accordance with ABA Accreditation Standard 509. If you have any questions about McGeorge's employment data, please contact the CSO at or 916.739.7011.

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 admissions 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
