The objective of this article is to analyse the degree and characteristics of the labour insertion of the graduates of the Faculty of Law when comparing them with the rest of graduates of the University of Barcelona, taking into account the sex, labour situation during the university pathway and the average academic grade. The data comes from the Labour Insertion Survey to the graduated population of Catalan universities carried out by the Agency for Quality of the University System of Catalonia (AQU) in 2014. The sample used corresponds to 3,425 university graduates in the University of Barcelona. The technique used is bivariate and multivariate analysis. For the comparative analysis we used contingency tables and for the explanatory, bivariate logistic regression. The results show that the employment situation of all graduates of the Faculty of Law is characterized by a high degree of occupation. Stability in employment on fixed contracts is higher in men than in women; the full-time work is predominantly homogeneous in both groups, and the monthly salary shows an inequality between women and men, the women have the most precarious conditions. In this way, the results obtained allow us to validate two hypotheses and refute a third one. In the first instance, there is a positive relationship between the degree of occupation and the academic grade; secondly, gender inequality is confirmed in favour of men in terms of working conditions. Finally, unlike expected, it is observed that there is a certain adequacy or matching between the work done and the training received at the university.
