Wayne Law Alumni Reach New High in Post-Graduation Success

DETROIT — Wayne Law proudly announces an outstanding achievement with its Class of 2023, boasting an impressive 93% employment rate among graduates. This significant milestone not only reflects the dedication and excellence of Wayne Law's students but also emphasizes the institution's commitment to supporting career success. 

Graduates of the Class of 2023 have also seen a rise in starting salaries. Graduates who reported starting salaries marked a notable increase in their starting salary over the previous year. The Office of Career Success has played a pivotal role in facilitating connections with prominent employers, contributing to the heightened employment rate and salary advancements for graduates. 

"Wayne Law is thrilled to celebrate the remarkable achievements of our Class of 2023, whose exceptional employment rates and salary increases exemplify the caliber of talent nurtured within our institution,” said Lisa Fadler, Senior Assistant Dean of Career Success.  

Wayne Law also partnered with JD Advising to provide our 2024 bar takers with a free, supplemental bar preparation program designed to bolster graduate success on the bar examination. Specifically for the February 2024 bar exam, Wayne Law’s first-time taker bar pass rate improved dramatically and was 19% above the statewide average.  For 2025 bar takers and beyond, JD Advising will provide a full-scale, comprehensive bar preparation program that offers an individualized approach with one-on-one tutoring and the unique ability to design the best program for Wayne Law graduates based on a data-driven approach. The partnership with JD Advising is one of the many examples of our commitment to equipping students with the necessary tools for success, facilitating a smooth transition for students into their legal career.

Wayne Law continues to set the standard for legal education by empowering students with the resources needed to excel in their legal careers, further cementing its reputation as a premier institution of higher legal education.
