Information on employment outcomes for the Class of 2020 may not reflect a particular law school’s typical results in this area. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, bar admission exams were canceled or delayed in many jurisdictions, thus making it more challenging for graduates to secure employment by the annual Graduate Employment Status Date of March 15. Please reference the 3 years of employment outcome data posted on the ABA Required Disclosures webpage of each ABA-Approved law school or at www.abarequireddisclosures.org.

At least eight BC Law graduates secured employment between 3/15 and 4/7. If these graduates had been counted, percent employed would be 93.5%.
