Study: Mississippi is the worst state for job-seeking law school grads

MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) - Many people might think that lawyers may have job security in Mississippi, but a new study has confirmed that this is not the case for job-seeking law graduates.

According to an article on theatlantic.com, law schools for years have acknowledged they are producing too many graduates for too few available jobs.  In fact, no state in the United States ranks better than others when it comes to job openings for law school graduates.

According to the new research, based off of a ratio of graduates from ABA approved law schools to the average annual number of job openings between 2010 and 2020, Mississippi ranks worst in the nation with 10.53 law grads per legal job openings.
