Some of you may have seen the recent study finding that the percentage of African-American and Mexican-American students in law school has decreased in the last fifteen years. The study found that although there are 3,000 more first-year seats available today than in 1993 (the number of law schools has increased from 176 to 200), few of those seats are being filled by African-American or Mexican-American students. As a result, African-American and Mexican-American students comprise a smaller percentage of the entering law school class than they did in 1993. According to the ABA, the same trend is true of Puerto Rican law students, but that is not the case with all minority law students. In fact, both the number and percentage of law students who self-identify as “Other Hispanic,” Asian, or Pacific Islander increased significantly from 1993 to 2008.
