Dayton Law Second in Ohio in Job Numbers

The University of Dayton School of Law is second in Ohio when it comes to an important employment measurement.

Job numbers for the Class of 2019 show 83.3% of graduates got full-time, long-term, bar required or J.D. advantage jobs in the 10 months after graduation. That number puts Dayton Law second among the 10 law schools in the Ohio area, according to the Employment Summary Reports released to the American Bar Association.

“The Class of 2019 should be really proud of its success,” says Director of the Career Services Office and Assistant Dean Tim Swensen.

The latest numbers continue to build on UDSL’s rise in the rankings. The law school has also had finishes of third and fourth in the last four years in the same job metric.

“We have a lot of things in place at the law school that signal to me this will not be an exception but the new normal,” Swensen says.

Swensen says the law school’s alumni have played a big role in the recent results.

“Our alums have had an enormous impact in terms of networking with students and providing summer internships and externships and job opportunities,” Swensen says.

Swensen says another factor in the success is the individual attention the Career Services Office can provide students.

“We get to know our students much better, so our individualized plan for each student is more specific and more effective,” Swensen says.
