Today, the University of Illinois College of Law published its 2020-2021 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 approximately 175 recent College of Law graduates in the Classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020. 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 2020-2021 Employer Honor Roll is an impressive and diverse collection of employers,” noted Greg Miarecki, Executive Assistant Dean for Career Planning and Professional Development. “We are excited to welcome fifteen new Honor Roll employers in 2020,” Miarecki added.
“We are especially proud of our most recent graduates, who graduated from the College and took the bar at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The large number of new Honor Roll employers is a reflection of the success of our Class of 2020 in the job market,” noted Dean Vikram Amar.
