LSAC Volume Summary - Admitted Applicants by Ethnic and Gender Group

The current volume summary of admitted applicants by ethnic and gender group is available below. However, due to significant changes in data collection methods, race/ethnicity data collected after 2009 are not directly comparable to prior data. Data from 2000–2009 are still available but have been archived separately.
