The ABA has just released the law graduate outcomes for 2013 and it's another bad year for Washington and Lee. The school placed 100th on the "Percent Employed Full-Time/Long-Term Bar Passage-Required Jobs (Excluding Law-School-Funded Jobs)" list. [http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2014/04/aba-releases-.html]
Their full-time long-term score was up some, but its Underemploment score was 35% compared to 31.5% in 2012. [http://www.lstscorereports.com/schools/wl/2013/]

The big problem for W & L though is its poor yield of accepted applicants for fall 2013.  Its yield was second worse of all ABA law schools at 12% bettering only UC Davis. [http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/aba/administrative/legal_education_and_admissions_to_the_bar/statistics/2013_fall_aba_approved_law_school_entering_class_information.authcheckdam.pdf] The poor enrollment yield is even more evidence that W & L' experiential program is having no effect. Its certainly not attracting students or employers.
