Chicago, IL, March 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- In 2011, the American Bar Association (ABA) began to require accredited law schools to submit "509 reports" that provide detailed information on their students and schools.
Associate's Mind recently took these reports and performed a statistical analysis of the data.
In 2011, 38 law schools had more women students enrolled than men.
In 2015, 85 law schools have more women students enrolled than men.
If there are the same percentage declines from 2015 to 2016:
Men: -5% of 57,520 students will result in 54,644 total male law students in 2016.
Women: -3% of 56,197 students will result in 54,512 total female law students in 2016.
Extrapolate that out one more year, and women will outnumber men in law schools for the first time ever.
