After joint review with Santa Clara, we have restored the school's profile using data provided by Santa Clara following its internal review of each 2010 graduate's student file. Rather than relying on student-supplied data, which is what the school reported to U.S. News and reported on its website (the original data in the school's profile), Santa Clara added data the administration culled from conversations and basic investigation.
Note: One major change is with the 28 jobs Santa Clara originally reported as non-professional. Santa Clara tells us "[t]his was done in error." While these graduates were still employed, Santa Clara does not know what sort of credentials (e.g. bar passage required) those graduates' jobs required. However, Santa Clara does know 12 of these 28 graduates' employer types (e.g. law firm) and expected working hours (i.e. FT or PT).
This page has been formatted to match the ABA's placement summaries, with minor language and stylistic tweaks for clarity. However, the data do not necessarily reflect the data reported by Santa Clara University to the ABA because data tend to drift between the various reporting deadlines. As such, the data below reflect data combined and reconciled from up to four different information sources: school websites, U.S. News, the ABA, and NALP.
