The practicing lawyers type terms along with the push for only counting jobs that "require a JD" are interesting, and perhaps problematic. For example, there are many jobs in State Capitols or in DC which prefer a JD or an MPP. Neither is required, but chances are you won't land that staffer job drafting legislation with just a BA. If these standards are written in a way that too narrowly defines "practicing lawyers" it may fail to count people who have a very good reason for going to law school, although they may never take the bar exam or "practice" law in the narrow sense. Now maybe that's not a lot of people, but it's certainly an important factor for a not insignificant number of law schools who place their students in policy related jobs.
