Class of 2022 Employment Outcomes: Drexel Kline Law Among Top Philadelphia-area Law Schools

92.4% Employed Full-time

April 20, 2023

Drexel University’s Kline School of Law ranks among the top law schools in the greater Philadelphia area for Class of 2022 employment outcomes. Ten months after graduation, 92.4% of the Class of 2022 (146 of 158 graduates) was employed in full-time, long-term jobs for which bar passage is required or a JD is an advantage. These positions are widely considered the “gold standard” for post-graduate legal employment.

“Our graduates’ outstanding track record in obtaining desirable jobs within a short time of graduating speaks volumes about the quality of a Drexel Kline Law education,” says Daniel M. Filler, dean and professor of law. Donna Gerson, associate dean for career strategies, adds, “Our employment results reflect the excellence of our students and the commitment of our outstanding faculty to teach the next generation of lawyers and foster a caring community.”

Graduates are working for more than 90 different employers in a range of settings, including law firms (48.6%); businesses and industries, such as technology, pharmaceuticals, and banking (12%); public interest and government, including public defenders and district attorneys’ offices, and organizations representing low-income, adolescent, elderly, and refugee clients (16.6%); and judicial clerkships (22.6%), which are prestigious post-graduate positions wherein the law clerk assists the judge with legal research, writing, and decision making.

Graduates are employed across the country, including in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, California, Washington D.C., New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Ohio, Arizona, Nevada, and South Carolina; as well as in the U.K. Several graduates chose to pursue advanced degrees after graduation, including Drexel Kline Law’s Cyber Law & Data Privacy LLM (Master of Laws) and other master’s and doctoral degrees.
