ABA Required Disclosures

The American Bar Association (ABA) requires that all member law schools make available specific reports and information on the law school.  Much of the information accessible on this page is available on other portions of our site and members of our admissions team are happy to answer any questions that you may have.  We hope that you will find these statistics useful, but are also eager to share with you stories about the people that make up our community.  At WashULaw, each story is unique, and your specific goals are important to us.

ABA Standard 509 Information Report

Every member law school submits an annual report to the ABA.   The 509 Information Report is intended to provide prospective students with a useful summary of information that they may find relevant or interesting.

Employment Summary

ABA member law schools also submit employment information to the ABA on an annual basis.  The Employment Summary reports for the past four years are available here:

We realize that these employment summaries include a lot of detailed information and may appear confusing.  We encourage you to look at our Career Opportunities page for specific student experiences or contact your admissions counselor if you have questions.

Scholarship Retention Data

At WashULaw, all of our JD scholarships are guaranteed for three years.  This is unusual and many schools make scholarship awards conditional on maintaining a certain GPA or class rank.  The ABA requires every member law school to post scholarship retention data.
