Employment Outcomes 2020 - Capital University Law School

Employment Outcomes 2020

  • 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.

    Please contact the Office of Professional Development with any questions or for more information about employment and salary data (614-236-6888 or OPD@law.capital.edu).

    The following is a snapshot of the graduate employment outcomes for the class of 2020 (September 2019; January and May 2020 graduates) as determined on or before March 15, 2021, and reported to the American Bar Association.
