NALP Surveys and ABA Surveys
The National Association for Law Placement, or NALP, The Association for Legal Career Professionals, facilitates legal career counseling and planning, recruitment and retention, and the professional development of law students and lawyers.Â NALP’s website provides information on recruiting trends, placement statistics, law firm information, law schools, and more.
Who completes the NALP survey?
Following graduation, all recent graduates receive a NALP survey by mail and by email. Please complete the paper survey or the online survey and return it to us at that time, regardless of your employment status. If your employment information changes prior to March 15th of the year following your graduation, please contact Career Services to update your survey responses.
Is my personal status confidential?
Yes. Personal information is kept confidential. The employment information from all graduates is combined into a statistical report that is submitted to NALP, with a portion also submitted to the American Bar Association (ABA). Some general, collective class information is made publicly available per ABA Standard 509.
What if I lose my NALP survey after graduation?
If you have not responded by Jan. 1, you will be contacted again. Simply complete the survey and return it to us at that time, regardless of your employment status. You may either mail it to Career Services, 1169 Edgewater Drive, Grundy, VA 24614, or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
