After years of declining numbers, The University of Kansas Law School says its 2012 graduates had improved success in finding jobs.

Law school dean Stephen Mazza says the school is pleased with data from the American Bar Association.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the association found that 85.6 percent of the university's law school's 2012 graduates found jobs nine months after graduation. That's the best rate in five years, ranking the university No. 95 in the country in graduate job placement.

In 2011, only 80.5 percent of the law school's class found jobs at the same point, a rank of 151.

Mazza credited assistant dean Arturo Thompson and other newly hired career services staff for improving the focus on finding jobs for graduates.
