April 9, 2018 - Employers know the value of a Cardozo law degree. Cardozo graduates are at work and sought after in every sector of the legal industry; from the largest law firms and financial compliance offices, to in-house legal departments at major fashion houses, to district attorneys’ and defenders’ offices.

We are pleased to report that 80.14% of our 2017 graduates are in “gold-standard jobs” (full-time, long-term jobs that require bar passage), a 5.58 percentage point increase from the year before. Another 6.85% of graduates landed full-time jobs for which a J.D. is an advantage, bringing the total to 86.99%. Together, these are generally regarded as the types of jobs most desired by recent law school graduates. 

Last year, 74.56% of Cardozo’s 2016 graduates secured gold-standard jobs, placing Cardozo 36th in the nation according to the National Law Journal, and tied for third in New York City.
