Abstract

This paper examines the employment prospects for students graduating from law school. I find that student expectations are unrealistically high and are the result of deceptive practices by law schools who are attempting to maximize their score in the U.S. News and World Report ranking system. I examine possible solutions to this problem, and propose increasing transparency as the best option. This paper highlights the problems and limitations in using data.
