A survey of career placement statistics published by preLaw Magazine shows that the Kline School of Law has made one of the largest improvements in employment outcomes for its students among law schools.

Between 2011 and 2015, the employment rate among Kline graduates increased by more than 5 percent, making the school the fifth most-improved in the U.S.

Employment outcomes improved more modestly at most law schools, the article said, noting that job placement rates did decline at 41 law schools.

In 2015, a higher percentage of Kline graduates were hired for JD-required and JD-preferred jobs than peers at any other law school in the Delaware Valley.

The intensive hands-on experience students receive through our Co-op, Clinic and Pro Bono programs give students skills and insights for legal practice, as well as opportunities to make favorable impressions on employers. The Career Strategies Office provides each student with one-on-one guidance for interviewing, resume writing, networking strategies and more, starting in their first year.   

For the second consecutive year, National Jurist, a sister publication, included the school in its annual listing of “best value” law schools. 

The only law school in Pennsylvania or the Delaware Valley to appear on the list, Kline is among 12 private law schools around the country named by the magazine for offering tremendous value for students’ tuition dollars.
