          NLJ Names UC Hastings in Top 50 Go-To Law Schools

          Sample alt tag.

          The National Law Journal (NLJ) has ranked UC Hastings College of the Law as the No. 38 “go-to” law school in its 2015 rankings.

          This annual report identifies the top 50 law schools with the highest percentage of 2014 juris doctor (JD) graduates hired as first-year associates at the nation’s most prestigious law firms.

          In 2014, 47 UC Hastings JD graduates, which was 12% percent of the class, accepted positions with NLJ 250 firms. This figure is on par with percentages from 2013.

          "Even though we have always known how strong we are as a school, it's good to see our strength shown in rankings," said Chancellor & Dean Frank Wu.

          By measuring law school outcomes specifically, the NLJ provides a measure of how the legal job market is performing. Aggregate figures are up for 2014, which is good news.

          The 2015 NLJ Go-To Law Schools report appears in the February 23rd edition of the newspaper and is also available online here.
