NALP Directory of Legal Employers

This directory provides information on member firms, including firm profiles, contacts, salary information, hours, benefits, demographics, hiring criteria, and other valuable data for students and alumni. Students and graduates may search legal employers that fit certain criteria by doing an "Advanced Search." Additionally, students and alumni may export data from the NALP Directory of Legal Employers into an Excel document to use for mail merge purposes.
