Hofstra Law Grads Rank 17 in Midcareer Earnings Survey
Hofstra Law graduates earn $149,700 a year on average at the midpoint of their careers, according to a recent survey by PayScale.
The survey analyzed midcareer earnings for employees with master’s, J.D., M.B.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Law school and business school graduates made up a significant portion of the top earners.
Hofstra Law ranks 29 in midcareer earnings out of the 605 graduate school programs listed in the survey, and 17 among law school programs.
“Prospective college students are being asked to make critical decisions about their financial future without all of the necessary information,” said Lydia Frank, editorial director at PayScale. “If students understand a bit about their future earning potential before making choices about where to attend, what to major in and how much to borrow, they’ll be in a much better position financially once they graduate and enter the workforce.”
The full survey is available on the PayScale website.
