    Dayton Law Given Top Grade for Transparency

    The University of Dayton School of Law was awarded an “A+” transparency grade by the National Jurist magazine in recognition of the comprehensive employment data provided for the Class of 2010 on its website.

    Dayton Law was one of only six law schools, of the 197 ABA-accredited institutions reviewed, to receive the highest mark available.

    “We are committed to providing accurate, thorough and useful information to both prospective and current students,” said Tim Swensen, assistant dean and director of career services. “And while we’re glad to receive a high mark from the National Jurist, it’s important to acknowledge the incredibly challenging market our recent graduates are confronting. To their great credit, they have succeeded at a remarkable level and have expended both great persistence and ingenuity to do so.”

    Swensen noted that the School of Law is always looking for additional ways to provide more support to students and alumni. “We are working with a number of graduates are still seeking different or increased employment,” he said, “and are dedicated to assisting all of our students and graduates in any way possible.”

    Dean Paul McGreal said that the law school stresses the importance of being open and transparent. “It’s something that students will find throughout their three years of legal studies at Dayton Law,” he said. “The recognition of openness and transparency is one of the ways in which we carry out the Marianist philosophy of community.”

    Swensen said the law school would make available the full results of employment stats for the Class of 2011 when officials receive a summary report from the National Association for Law Placement. Employment data is typically reported in the late spring or early summer.

    Services offered by the Career Services Office include tailored one-on-one counseling, informational programs and workshops, resume and cover letter review, library and electronic resources, job listings, interviewing opportunities and electronic job banks.

    As students consider law school or employment options, Swensen said, the School of Law pledges to do its best to answer any career-related questions you might have.
