The College of Law has published its 2016 Employer Honor Roll, which recognizes employers who have regularly hired recent College of Law graduates. The Honor Roll contains a wide variety of employers, including firms of various sizes, government agencies, courts, corporations, and academic departments. Combined, Honor Roll employers have hired nearly 200 recent College of Law graduates in the Classes of 2013, 2014, and 2015. The Honor Roll was first created in 2014. This edition of the Honor Roll contains 14 new employers. New this year to the Honor Roll is the introduction of Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels, which correspond to the number of recent graduates hired by employers.
“The 2016 Honor Roll recognizes and thanks our most loyal employers. This year’s Honor Roll contains a diverse list of employers, in terms of practice setting, geographic location, and employer size. This diversity demonstrates that College of Law graduates can make meaningful contributions to many different types of teams,” noted Greg Miarecki, the College’s Executive Assistant Dean for Career Planning and Professional Development. “We are especially pleased to welcome 14 new employers to the Honor Roll this year, and look forward to welcoming additional employers to the Honor Roll in the future,” Miarecki added.
