Employment data for the class of 2013 released by the American Bar Association paint a mixed picture of the legal job market. Fifty-seven percent of the graduates were able to find long-term positions requiring passage of the bar, which is a small increase from the 56.2% who did so the year before. However, the percentage of graduates who were unemployed and looking for work rose slightly to 11.2%. In the coming years, the number of legal graduates is expected to shrink.
