Is there a site showing number of students in school?

Postby taxguy » Fri Sep 17, 2010 12:58 pm

I am looking for a site that lists the number of students enrolled at each law school. Anyone know an easy way to obtain this information for the total law school population for a school?

Click on the state and then school that you want to know about. There is a PDF for each school titled "ABA Law School Data" which lists the current number of total students and last year's class size on the second page.

Also available is first year section size. If you are interested in any particular law schools, I'll be happy to post the numbers.

For example:

Georgetown has 1,982 total full & part-time students, 1,628 full-time enrollment, 593 first year students & 117 students in each first year section = very large class sizes.

Northwestern has 814 total full-time students (no part-time students), 271 first year law students broken down into sections of 65 students.

If number of students per course is a concern, then, among the top 14, Georgetown has the largest number of students in each first year class section while Yale probably has the smallest.

UCal-Berkeley 90
Georgetown 117
Cornell 99
Chicago 93
Columbia 95
Michigan 91
NYU 89

Harvard 80
Penn 85
Duke 68
Virginia 72
Northwestern 65
Stanford 60
Yale 58

Thus, Northwestern, Duke, Stanford & Yale offer the smallest class sections for first year law students.

P.S. UCLA 80 & Texas 99 & Vanderbilt 97 & WashUStL 96.
