LSAC Volume Summary - Matriculants by Ethnic and Gender Group

The current volume summary of matriculants 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 Data from 2000–2009 are still available but have been archived separately.
