CUA Law Ranks Among Top 30 Schools
Whose Grads Earn the Biggest Paychecks


For the second year in a row, graduates of the Columbus School of Law are listed among the highest earners in the legal profession, according to a just-published study from Forbes magazine. 

Catholic University’s law school is ranked at #30 in its article “The Law Schools Whose Grads Earn the Biggest Paychecks,”  (March 2013). Average starting pay for CUA Law graduates is $63,000. 
The data is drawn from number obtained from directly from law schools, which included links to their employment statistics pages. 
“Our inclusion on this list reflects the significant endorsement by employers in the legal market of the value our graduates add,” said Daniel Attridge, Dean and Knights of Columbus Professor of Law at Catholic University’s law school. “Put simply, they are willing to pay well to attract and retain some of the best practitioners in the field.”
CUA Law is among just three law schools in the D.C./Baltimore legal education market to be listed in the Top 30.
