A versatile new tool for calculating employment rates for all law schools

The Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers project (and here) has created a versatile new interactive tool called Law Jobs: By The Numbers that lets users calculate the post-graduate employment rate for every law school reporting employment data to the ABA.  It allows users to calculate those employment rates based on several criteria such as "bar passage required" versus "JD advantage." Users can also exclude school-funded jobs and grads who go solo to give a more accurate picture of how many students actually get hired after graduation.  The calculator uses the employment data collected by the ABA by way of its annual law school questionnaire.  Another feature lets users review the employment rates for each school, or compare rates between schools, based on formulas used by other organizations and ranking bodies like the National Association for Law Placement, U.S. News & World Report, the Law School Transparency project, Above The Law and National Jurist Magazine.
