* JD Advantage – A position in this category is one for which the employer sought an individual with a JD, and perhaps even required a JD, or for which the JD provided a demonstrable advantage in obtaining and performing the job, but itself does not require bar passage, an active law license, or involve practicing law. Examples of positions for which a JD is an advantage include corporate contracts administrator, alternative dispute resolution specialist, government regulatory analyst, FBI agent, and accountant. Also included might be jobs in personnel or human resources, jobs in financial services, jobs with consulting firms, and jobs doing compliance work in business and industry.

While the ABA Employment Summary Report and the NALP Summary Report reflect the same time periods for Albany Law School’s Class of 2011 employment statistics, the reported numbers for the ABA “Employment Type” and NALP “Employment Categories ” differ by one (190 versus 189) as the ABA numbers reflect additional data received for the reported period subsequent to the submission of data to NALP.
