“a far higher percentage of this class reported employment that was temporary . . . . Overall, nearly 25% of all jobs were reported as temporary . . . . 42% of the law schools reporting that they provided on-campus post-graduate jobs for their students.

Reading between the lines it appears that only 61% of ’09 Class have permanent jobs.  See “The Numbers are In: The Job Market Stinks!” and “New NALP Numbers Are Out — and as Bad as Ever.”
