Low enrollment for law schools = better BigLaw job chances for grads.

As noted in this article posted in the UVA student newspaper:

“The number of first-year law students has reached its lowest national level since 1973, according to an American Bar Association report.”

UVA law school credits this decline at their school not to “national trends” but to an “intentional effort” to lower student/faculty ratio.  Law school spin or not, the fact is that low enrollment numbers for law schools is actually great news for law students looking to break into BigLaw.  The applicant pool for BigLaw jobs is better now than it has been in several years.  According to the dean of UVA law:

“The national entry-level job market for lawyers has improved in each year since 2011.”
