Today, the University of Illinois College of Law published its 2018-19 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 firms of various sizes, government agencies, courts, corporations, and academic departments. Combined, Honor Roll employers have hired more than 300 recent College of Law graduates in the Classes of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. The Honor Roll was first created in 2014. This year, the College of Law introduced a new “Diamond Level” to the Honor Roll, with four employers achieving this high honor in its first year.
“The 2018-19 Employer Honor Roll is by far our largest and most diverse group, with employers from Florida to California,” noted Greg Miarecki, the College’s Executive Assistant Dean for Career Planning and Professional Development. “We are pleased to welcome many new employers to the Honor Roll this year, and are especially pleased to welcome employers of many different types and sizes,” Miarecki added.
