A San Diego law school with a lot of indebted students has topped a National Law Journal ranking of law schools with the highest percentage of jobless graduates. More than 31 percent of Thomas Jefferson School of Law's graduates had not gotten any job at all nine months out of school, according to NLJ, which cited American Bar Association data.

Unemployment could be particularly painful for Thomas Jefferson Law grads. Its graduates have an average debt load of $168,800 -- more than any other law school, according to U.S. News & World Report.
