About the 2020 Raw Data Law School Rankings Report

ILRG's 2020 Raw Data Law School Rankings Report was released in spring 2019.

GPA & LSAT

References to the lowest, median, and highest GPA and LSAT scores, including all data under the headings "GPA Low", "GPA Median", "GPA High", "LSAT Low", "LSAT Median" and "LSAT High" reflect those of the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentile, respectively, among those applicants granted admission who enrolled as full-time students in fall 2018

Acceptance Rate & Student-to-Faculty Ratio

The acceptance rates for the same enrolled class are shown under the heading "Accept." The student-to-faculty ratio is indicated under the heading "S/F Ratio" and shows the number of students for that class per faculty member. In both cases, the data reflect the applicants granted admission who enrolled as full-time students in fall 2018.

State & Bar Passage Rates

The bar passage rates reflect those among first-time test takers for the summer 2017 and winter 2018 administrations of the bar examinations. "St." and "State Bar" noted for each law school are the state and statewide bar passage rate, respectively, for the jurisdiction in which the greatest number of the law school's graduates took the bar exam for the reported period. "Pass Bar" is the bar passage rate among those students who passed the bar exam within that jurisdiction.

Employment Rates

The employment rates shown are those of the 2017 full-time graduates at the time of graduation ("Empl. @Grad") and ten months after graduation ("Empl. @10Mos").

Law Library Volumes

The data shown under the heading "Library" indicate the number of print and microform volumes, as well as volume equivalents.

Gender, Race & Ethnicity

The data shown under "Male Fac." and "Fem. Fac." indicate the percentage of the faculty that are male and female, respectively.

The data shown under "Min. Fac." and "Min. Stu." indicate the percentage of the faculty and students that are racial or ethnic minority (Hispanics of any race, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, multiracial, non-resident alien, or unknown race).


Source: The data have been compiled from a variety of public sources, including data released by the law schools and from the bar examiner offices in each jurisdiction.

Next Release: Our 2021 report is slated for publication in spring 2020.
