Summer Employment Data

Approximately 20 - 40 students in each class worked at more than one job during these summers. For example, many 2Ls split their summers between working at a law firm and for a public sector employer, and many 1Ls split their summers between working for a public sector employer and serving as a research assistant to a member of the Law School faculty. Students who split their summers were counted only in the category of their primary job.
