Today, the University of Illinois College of Law published its 2021-2022 Employer Honor Roll. The Honor Roll recognizes employers who have regularly hired recent College of Law graduates. The Honor Roll contains a wide variety of employers, including, for example, law firms of various sizes, accounting firms, a wide variety of government agencies, public interest employers, and courts. Combined, Honor Roll employers have hired over 180 recent College of Law graduates in the Classes of 2019, 2020 and 2021. The Honor Roll was first created in 2014. With the support of Honor Roll members, and hundreds of additional employers, the College of Law has continued to deliver a strong array of opportunities for its graduates.
“The 2021-2022 Employer Honor Roll is an amazing, diverse collection of legal organizations,” Executive Assistant Dean for Career Planning and Professional Development, Greg Miarecki, commented. “We are excited to welcome twelve new Honor Roll employers this year,” Miarecki added.
“We are grateful to our Honor Roll winners and to our recent graduates, who displayed tremendous resilience in the face of a global pandemic, political unrest, and war abroad,” noted Vik Amar, the dean of the College of Law.
