ABA Standard 509 Required Disclosures
The American Bar Association asks all law schools to provide prospective students consumer information so that they may make an informed choice of law schools. Below are the required disclosures, in the form required by the ABA where applicable. The full text of Standard 509 can be found on the ABA website.
The data presented here reflects information collected from graduates by Texas Tech University School of Law's Career & Professional Development Center and reported to the American Bar Association and National Association of Legal Professionals. The information represents composite information for the graduating class and does not predict future performance. Individual success may vary and may be affected by academic success, general economic conditions, legal market conditions, work experience, experiential study participation, career choice, job type and location and other factors.
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.
