ABA Website Updates Data on Law School Admissions, Tuition and Other Matters:
Information about admissions and other matters reported by American Bar Association-approved law schools to the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar and required to be made public under Standard 509 of the Standards and Rules of Procedure for Approval of Law Schools is now publicly available by clicking here.
The material is collected by the section, which requires law schools each year to disclose data in several categories, covering admissions, tuition and living costs, financial aid, class and faculty demographics, employment outcomes, bar passage and other areas. The data can be easily searched and sorted, allowing for school-by-school comparisons and analysis and should be useful to prospective law students, pre-law advisors, media outlets and others who study and write about legal education.
The spreadsheets, explanatory information and the ABA's database of Standard 509 reports are available at www.abarequireddisclosures.org. Some of this information has been collected and summarized in the News and Announcements section on the section's website and in its Statistics section. The section’s 509 available reports go back only to 2011 although other historical statistics are available through the statistics link.
