Georgia State Law is required to report statistics of graduates to the American Bar Association (ABA) and National Association for Law Placement (NALP). These statistics are also used to calculate ranking scores with the U.S. News & World Report and other entities. The Georgia State University College of Law’s national reputation relies on accurate and complete reporting.
All student information is reported anonymously and kept strictly confidential.
All survey fields must be completed by graduates (including salary), even if employment is outside the legal field or not yet obtained. The ABA implements secure protocols to ensure data accuracy and considers Symplicity survey entries to be the most authentic source of information.
The Center for Professional Development & Career Strategies Office will verify survey completion and and inform graduates when they can pick up their invitations.
