NALP Directory of Legal Employers
The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) publishes a directory of legal employers every year. This directory is available through the Alumni Community (login required) and provides information on member firms, including firm profiles, contacts, salary information, hours, benefits, demographics, hiring criteria, and other valuable data for students and alumni. Students and graduates may search legal employers that fit certain criteria by doing an "Advanced Search." Additionally, students and alumni may export data from the NALP Directory of Legal Employers into an Excel document to use for mail merge purposes. Click here to access a PDF with mail merge instructions. You must be a registered user of the Alumni Community to access this feature.
